Master Degree in Speech Language Pathology

A master’s in speech-language pathology degree is a postgraduate degree program designed to prepare students for licensure and practice as speech therapists. Professionals who achieve this level of education will be far beyond entry-level work and qualified to practice either independently or within a group practice. By building on the education gained from undergraduate study, students of the master’s in speech-language pathology program are trained to diagnose speech disorders and then implement a treatment plan.


  According to the American Stroke Association, nearly 700,000 Americans suffer from stroke every year; about one person every 45 seconds. In fact, more than four-million Americans are currently living with the after effects of stroke. Statistically, 40% of patients that suffer stroke will have moderate-to-severe speech disability and will require special care, while 10% of these patients will require long-term care and management.

As a student of the master’s in speech-language pathology degree, it is important to understand that these are the types of patients that you are likely to be working with. While you will be qualified to work with speech disabilities of all etiologies, you should understand the affect that stroke is having on the demand for speech language pathologists. As you can see, every year nearly 280,000 stroke patients are likely to require special care or speech rehabilitation.
