The clinical graduate programs in speech-language pathology and audiology at Syracuse University are nationally ranked, accredited programs with a long history of excellence. While pursuing a speech-language pathology or audiology degree, students have the opportunity to work with researchers in state-of-the-art laboratories and to learn from master clinicians in the areas of speech, language, and hearing. In addition, the location of the University provides students opportunities to gain clinical experience in diagnosis and treatment with a wide variety of clinical populations.
Doctor of Philosophy Speech-Language Pathology
The Ph.D. program in speech-language pathology consists of academic, research, and clinical experiences, with an emphasis on basic and applied science. Sponsorship of the Ph.D. student by a faculty member must be agreed upon prior to the time of enrollment. Interested students should contact the department to match with a faculty sponsor prior to applying. Courses for the Ph.D. degree are selected from a number of areas related to communication disorders, such as psychology, engineering, linguistics, computer science, statistics, sensory processes, neurosciences, gerontology, and special education, as well as audiology and speech-language pathology.
Students begin their research experiences early in their programs and are mentored in faculty laboratories. The Ph.D. degree requires a minimum of 83 credits beyond the bachelor’s degree. Students must pass a pre-qualifying exam at the end of their first year of full-time study and qualifying exams at the end of their coursework. The academic and research experiences lead to the dissertation, which is typically begun in the third year. The programs may be completed in four years of full-time study.
