Program overview

It is offered in a primarily online format to meet the needs of non-traditional students with employment or family commitments that preclude participation in a traditional on-campus program. You will visit the Greeley campus for one 2-week period during the third semester in the summer for laboratory experiences associated with coursework and academic advising. The program is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) through September 2025. This three-year master's degree program is offered by the Audiology and Speech-Language Sciences (ASLS) program of the College of Natural and Health Sciences, delivered online with the support of UNC Extended Campus. You will progress through the program as part of a cohort (group of students moving through the program together). The graduate curriculum provides the academic and clinical practicum components of the requirements for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology awarded by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association. In addition to the coursework, satisfactory performance on a culminating activity or activities approved by the program faculty, in accordance with Graduate School policy, satisfies the completion of a comprehensive examination required to complete the Master of Arts program.
