Online SLP Master's Program and Prerequisite Courses
We are the first accredited online master's SLP program in Pennsylvania
Our online graduate and undergraduate prerequisite courses are primarily synchronous; however, if students are unable to attend a class or classes, they may access the recordings by requesting a link from the faculty member. For the graduate online program, an on-campus summer clinical residency is required before students can proceed to fieldwork. Discounted summer housing is available on campus. See the Graduate Online Program application section below if you are applying for the graduate online program.
If students do not have a bachelor’s degree in communication disorders/speech-language pathology, but have a bachelor’s degree in another field, they can take our undergraduate online prerequisite courses before applying to the online SLP master’s program. See the Prerequisites section below if you are applying for the undergraduate online prerequisite courses only.
Our unique, state-of-the art hands-free technology allows for a more personalized classroom experience because we use automated switching technology with voice activated facial recognition cameras to provide studio quality high-level instruction. If professors walk around the classroom while lecturing, the online students can see professors because cameras in the classroom follow the professors. If students who are physically in the classroom ask questions, cameras zoom into the students who ask questions. Online students can also participate and they are projected on the classroom screens for the entire class to see and actively engage in conversation. The multi-camera and intelligent switching system follows the conversation with clean, broadcast-style cuts allowing for an unparalleled learning experience.
