Anna Maria College has extended the timetable so that the Class of 2025 can continue to complete their music degrees at the College.

The Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (MS-SLP) program, housed in the USC Caruso Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, is entering the second semester of its first year, having opened in Fall 2021. The program leverages the Keck School of Medicine’s resources as a premiere medical school in the nation’s second largest city to train a new generation of speech-language pathologists. The MS-SLP program consists of 69 units, which are taught over two years/six semesters. Additionally, students are required to acquire 400 clinical hours, take comprehensive examinations, and present a capstone project. Although it is only in its first year, USC’s setting and offerings provide an extraordinary opportunity to build a top-ranked speech-language pathology program.

Speech therapy is not one thing. There are different types of speech therapy, each of which involves approaches and techniques that are specific to the issue that needs addressing. That could be related to speech itself—e.g., therapy for people who stutter—or it could relate to problems with memory swallowing, and more. A speech-language pathologist (SLP), often just called a speech therapist, will perform assessments to determine which type(s) of speech therapy is right for you.
