Students entering the program with a bachelor's in communication sciences and disorders (CSD) can complete the master's program in two years. Students with a bachelor's in a field other than CSD will be required to take an additional one-year leveling program before enrolling in the core master's curriculum. 

Upon successful completion of all requirements and graduation from the Master of Science in speech-language pathology program at CUW, individuals will be prepared to apply for the initial licensure required for practice in the state of Wisconsin. Click here to view our Handbook and learn more about the SLP program.

As an SLP, you will have the opportunity to work in many different education, health care, and research settings with varying roles and levels of responsibility. You'll also have the opportunity to work with a diverse client population serving individuals across the lifespan. In many settings, you may often work as part of a collaborative, interdisciplinary team, which may include teachers, physicians, audiologists, psychologists, social workers, physical and occupational therapists, and rehabilitation counselors.
