Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, Minor

The clinical SLPA minor seeks to prepare students for admission into a graduate program in speech-language pathology or audiology. In particular, students in this minor are on a track that, if supplemented with certain elective choices within their major, would meet all admissions requirements for our department’s own MS/SLP program.

The clinical SLPA minor consists of one required foundation course taken prior to core courses, then five department-specific SLPA core courses.

Students pursuing this minor are advised to consult early and regularly with their academic advisors in order to ensure a timely completion of the combination of their major and the clinical SLPA minor requirements.

Students pursuing this minor who wish to go to graduate school at institutions other than Northeastern are advised to carefully check admissions requirements for those programs.

Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified.
