Clinical or nonclinical M.S. in speech-language pathology

Welcome to the Current M.S. Students section of the UW-Madison Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders Web site. We are delighted that you are completing graduate work in our department.

Master’s degree students choose one of two areas of emphasis:

  1. Speech-Language Pathology. The M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology is a clinical degree that meets the requirements for:
    • the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence;
    • a license to practice as a Speech-Language Pathologist in the state of Wisconsin; and
    • teacher certification in the state of Wisconsin from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI).

    Our clinical master’s degree program in Speech-Language Pathology is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

  2. Normal Aspects of Speech, Language and Hearing. The M.S. in Normal Aspects of Speech, Language and Hearing is a non-clinical degree. Most students complete this degree as a first step toward a Ph.D.
