  • About

    Yeshiva University is seeking to offer a new Master of Science Program in Speech-Language Pathology, and is seeking status as an applicant for accreditation candidacy with the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA). The program leads to the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and licensure in the state of New York. The program will be offered primarily on the Wilf Campus in Manhattan, in cooperation with Albert Einstein College of Medicine campus and the Montefiore Medical Center, with distinguished faculty in speech-language pathology, audiology and medicine.

    The MS degree program in speech-language pathology provides academic and clinical education. The program spans 5 semesters (fall, spring, summer, fall, spring). Throughout the program, a variety of clinical training venues are available through the Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Yeshiva University, as well as clinical training in the New York City region.

    Vision of the Program

    The Program was created to expand the current educational and clinical training opportunities existing at the undergraduate speech-language pathology and audiology program (Stern College for Women), to address the deficit of available medical speech-language pathology programs, and to serve the specific population of the Washington Heights and Bronx region of New York City.

    Mission of the Program
