About Speech-Language Pathology

The Department of Speech-Language Pathology at SUNY Buffalo State is part of the School of the Professions.  Speech-language pathologists are educated to assess the development of speech and language, and to treat speech and language disorders. They are prepared for rewarding careers as speech-language pathologists through our nationally recognized program that provides direct experience with clients in both clinical and school settings.  They work to prevent, diagnose, evaluate, and treat communication disorders in people of all ages—from infants to older adults—and are qualified to teach students who have speech, language, hearing, and swallowing impairments. Graduates with a bachelor of science in speech-language pathology are prepared to earn the master's degree necessary to practice speech-language pathology in all professional settings.

Nationally Recognized

With a faculty recognized for its tradition of excellence, a master's program accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), and learning facilities like the Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic, our nationally recognized M.S.Ed. program provides direct experience with clients in both clinical and school settings.
