UNC Greensboro’s Speech Language Pathology (SLP) Master’s program has been preparing clinicians to serve children, youth, and adults with communication disorders for nearly 50 years. The program requires 66 credit hours (34 credits in academic course work and 32 credits in clinical course work) and provides a lifespan approach for advanced study of language, speech, swallowing, non-speech communication systems, and hearing in persons of all ages. The UNCG Speech and Hearing Center, the hearing and speech laboratories focused on research on adult and child language, and a variety of human service agencies provide students with ample clinical and research experiences.
The department actively engages and impacts the community through research and clinical activities. Additionally, graduate students volunteer their time and energy to organize, fundraise, cook, and walk to support organizations such as the Brain Injury Association of North Carolina. These efforts help to increase community awareness of brain injury and to raise funds for thousands of individuals in the state who are living with the chronic effects of brain injury.
