Speech and Language Pathology


About the programme

The programme in speech and language pathology is a trans-disciplinary programme with three important theoretical areas, in addition to the main study field of speech and language pathology: linguistics, psychology and medicine. The students get their first clinical experience early in the programme. Already the first term they prepare for their anticipated activities with patients. The preparation is done through case studies and group discussions. From the fifth term and throughout the programme there are several periods of clinical placements. Experienced, certified speech-language pathologists function as clinical supervisors at the wards where students are placed. Critical evaluation of current research is a recurrent theme during the programme. The last term is spent completing a research project leading to a Masters thesis. A degree in speech and language pathology requires a total of 240 higher education credits equivalent to 4 years. The programme has got admission once a year with an intake of approximately 25 students in each intake. The programme starts in August (autumn).
