San Diego State University’s Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) graduate program – ranked No. 1 in California and No. 24 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report – will debut its online Speech-Language Pathology Essentials program during the fall 2016 semester.

The fall courses are SLHS 305/Hearing Science (3 units) and SLHS 321/Anatomy and Physiology of Speech (4 units).

-- SLHS 305/Hearing Science is an introduction to hearing and speech science that includes the study of basic functions of auditory anatomy and physiology.
-- SLHS 321/Anatomy and Physiology of Speech covers the basic anatomy and physiology of the speech mechanism for human communication.

Additional courses will be offered in the coming terms.

“With courses based on cutting-edge research and best practice in the field, we’re excited about our new online program in Speech-Language Pathology Essentials, which will help students get started on their career path,” said Jessica Barlow, professor in the School of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at SDSU.

The credit program prepares students to apply to graduate programs in Speech-Language Pathology. Students may take individual courses as needed to meet prerequisite requirements for their desired graduate program.

The curriculum is non-cohort and is led by lecturers from SDSU’s SLHS department. Each online course takes 15 weeks to complete and costs $317 per unit.

The courses are offered through SDSU’s College of Health and Services, in conjunction with SDSU’s College of Extended Studies. The program is open to individuals not currently enrolled in an SDSU degree program.
