Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology Option

Speech Language Pathology Audiology


The Auburn Montgomery Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology program is one of only a few in the country where undergraduate students receive direct clinical experience with patients. After graduation, students are qualified to work in the public school systems of Alabama as an assistant to a licensed speech therapist. Students may also opt to pursue a graduate degree to qualify as a licensed speech therapist or audiologist. Jobs are available in school systems, private practice, or a hospital-medical setting.

Students enter the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology curriculum after achieving junior standing at AUM. Virtually all core curriculum coursework should have been completed so that professional education is not interrupted.

You will spend your junior and senior years completing academic coursework in speech-language pathology and audiology and obtaining required clinical training and experience with patients through the Speech and Hearing Center on AUM's campus. You will complete approximately 60 hours of supervised experience in speech-language therapy and assessment and treatment of patients with hearing disorders.
