The Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) program leading to a M.S. degree is housed in the School of Health Professions (SHP), at Stony Brook University’s Southampton location. It is a comprehensive and rigorous program which prepares students for positions in a variety of settings including hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, long-term care facilities, extended care facilities, schools, agencies, and private practices. Stony Brook University (SBU) is affiliated with Stony Brook University Hospital, Long Island State Veterans Home, and Southampton Hospital. Students will engage in clinical practice each semester throughout their two-year program. The graduate students in this program will engage in clinical simulations and interprofessional practice experiences with students from other health-related programs. The degree program is offered in a traditional weekday format and there is a cohort model which fosters camaraderie among students. Students are required to complete pre-requisite coursework prior to their admission into the program. During a student’s didactic coursework, the student will have opportunities to observe and interact with patients diagnosed with a number of different diseases/disorders including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Aphasia, Cleft Palate, Autism, and Alzheimer’s Disease. Upon completion of the program, students will be eligible for their American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) certification and New York State (NYS) licensure. Optional tracks will prepare students for initial teaching certification and bilingual extension certification (in Spanish) in the schools.
