Ph.D. & Clinical Training in SLP

Combined Ph.D. & training in SLP

SPHS offers a Ph.D. program wherein you can complete requirements so that you are eligible to apply for ASHA certification in Speech-Language Pathology.

This track of the Ph.D. program is designed to offer students the educational opportunities to develop clinical and research competence within a more limited timeframe than might be required by independent enrollment in the M.A. and Ph.D. programs separately.

If you are interested in this track, you must indicate your interest on the application to the Ph.D. program.

How to apply

Applicants wishing to pursue clinical certification must meet the criteria for admission to both the M.A. and Ph.D. programs. Please see the M.A. Handbook for information about M.A. admissions. Requirements for admission to the Ph.D. program include the need for a Ph.D. mentor; therefore, potential applicants must have an area of research interest that aligns with one or more SPHS faculty members. Further, the applicant must identify a potential mentor in his/her personal statement.
