The field of speech pathology includes careers in hospitals, schools, clinics and nursing facilities. Students majoring in speech pathology are required to complete the University core curriculum with a GPA of 2.75 or higher.
The School of Medicine offers a bachelor of science degree with a major in speech pathology.
