Graduate Program

The graduate program in communication disorders at Indiana State University provides professional training for a career as a speech-language pathologist.  In addition to advanced coursework in communication disorders, graduate students participate in extensive clinical experiences including a hospital practicum.  Ideally, a prospective graduate student should hold a bachelor’s degree in communication disorders or speech-language pathology.  Graduates with degrees in other areas must take prerequisite undergraduate coursework prior to admittance to the graduate program.  Students work closely with faculty to design programs to fit their individual needs.

The Department of Communication Disorders and Counseling, School, and Educational Psychology (CDCSEP) offers graduate programs in Communication Disorders (Speech-Language Pathology).The program in Communication Disorders is designed to build upon undergraduate course work, to strengthen the theoretical and practical base needed for evaluation and treatment of communication disorders, as well as to provide the student with intensive, supervised practicum/internship experiences in a variety of educational and medical settings. The master’s degree (M.S./M.A.) education program in speech-language pathology at Indiana State University is accredited through May 31, 2017 by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, MD  20850, 301-296-5700.  During the February 2014 meeting of the CAA the Communication Disorders program was placed on probation.  A program placed on probation is judged to be not in compliance with the standards for accreditation and has one year to provide a report to the CAA that indicates how the program has addressed the areas of non-compliance. The Communication Disorders program is actively working to resolve the issues so that we can demonstrate compliance with all standards. However, it is important to note that a program on probation remains accredited.
