M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology
Welcome to the Graduate Program of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) at the LIU Brooklyn campus (hereafter referred to as "The Graduate Program"). The Department of CSD seeks to advance the study of human communication sciences and disorders within a culturally and linguistically diverse society. Intellectual growth is promoted through the recognition and expression of multiple theoretical, cultural, and individual perspectives. The department fosters respect for diversity and a commitment to serve individuals with communication problems.
The Graduate Program at LIU Brooklyn is an independent program, unrelated to the Graduate Speech Pathology Program at the LIU Post campus. The program is registered by the New York State Department of Education and is accredited by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Graduates of the program receive a Master of Science Degree in Speech-Language Pathology that satisfies the academic and professional requirements specified by ASHA for the CCC-SLP, and are eligible to apply for licensure in SLP by the New York State Department of Education's Office of the Professions. Students who wish to satisfy the New York State Education Office of Teaching requirements for Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD) may also prepare for this certification as part of their graduate program. Students demonstrating proficiency (i.e., speaking, listening, reading, and writing) in a language other than English may further prepare for a certificate in Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities with a Bilingual Extension. This program will prepare students to work with individuals who are bilingual or speak a language other than English.
