  • The undergraduate program meets the core requirements for admission to graduate school.
  • Courses fulfill certain academic and practicum requirements for clinical certification from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
  • Students may select additional courses leading to New York State certification as a Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD). However, student teaching is required for certification and is offered only at the graduate level.
