The Master of Science Degree in the option of Speech-Language Pathology leads to fulfillment of the academic requirements for certification as a speech-language pathologist by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, as well as fulfillment of the academic requirements for licensure as a speech-language pathologist in California and other states, and academic fulfillment of the requirements for a speech-language pathology specialist credential in the State of California for employment in the public schools.
