Speech-Language-Pathology Post-baccalaureate Teacher Certification Course Requirements

(approximately 24 credits)

The Teacher Certification track is undertaken in addition to earning the master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology.

Only matriculated CSD graduate students are eligible for this track. Alumni of the master’s program in Speech-Language Pathology may be eligible for this track if an opening exists. Earning Teacher Certification from the PA Department of Education (DOE) is a separate certification from the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence. Therefore, students may need additional semesters to complete these requirements. Students interested in pursuing Teacher Certification must meet with either the CSD Graduate Program Director or the CSD Internship Coordinator to complete a plan of study for this additional track. A minimum QPA of 3.00 is also required. All coursework in education must be approved by the Education Department chair and is subject to change based on PA Department of Education requirements.
