Time of Progress and Possibility
“This exciting new program showcases many of our strengths at Ithaca College: healthcare, communication, and an education that meets students where they are. This online program does that in innovative ways that allow us to reach off campus but continue the world-class educational experience for which Ithaca College is known. We are excited that this degree program can help students unlock their full potential, especially if they are working fulltime or living in areas that lack educational or practicum opportunities. Beyond the coursework itself, we are committed to helping students from enrollment through externships and even in the job-search process, providing guidance and practical support such as career connections and networking opportunities. We are thrilled to expand the reach of our speech-pathology program and to help so many exceptional new students as they take their education and careers to the next level.”

What Can You Do With a Master's in Speech-Language Pathology?
Speech is the most basic form of communication and a critical part of our development — it makes us uniquely human. From infancy to the end of life, we use speech and language to learn, develop our personalities, and communicate our ideas and emotions. Language helps us view and adapt to the world around us.
