(SIMS Code: 550170)

The Certificate in Bilingual Speech-Language Pathology is designed for students who plan to work with bilingual speakers with communicative disorders. To be a candidate for the certificate, a student must be seeking the master’s degree program in speech-language pathology since the certificate is coordinated with these endeavors.

The certificate program requires completion of 13 units to include nine units of substantive coursework and four units of graduate clinical practicum with bilingual speakers with communicative disorders. Based on research and clinical expertise of the faculty, as well as the availability of a clinical population, the certificate is currently focused on Spanish-English communicative disorders.

In Addition


In addition, students must complete 100 hours of graduate clinical practicum in the target language(s). Candidates seeking admission to the certificate program must pass a Spanish proficiency test and satisfy admission requirements to the school as listed in the Graduate Bulletin. Students who speak languages for which clinical training is not available (i.e., languages other than Spanish) are encouraged to apply to the specialization in bilingualism within the concentration in speech-language pathology.
