Speech Pathology - Courses and careers
The speech pathology program comprises a bachelor degree and a professional, graduate entry master's degree.
The Bachelor of Applied Science (Speech Pathology) prepares students to assess and treat people who have a communication or swallowing disability (dysphagia). Communication disabilities include difficulties with speaking, using and understanding language, voice, fluency, hearing, reading and writing.
The Master of Speech Language Pathology is intended for graduates who hold a PhD, master's or bachelor’s degree in a relevant area. The curriculum is designed to enable students to learn in a way that resembles the clinical practice of speech language pathology, and comprises case-based learning and clinical placements to help students acquire the skills necessary to qualify and practise as speech pathologists in Australia.
