SDSU’s Online Speech-Language Pathology Graduate Program, Ranked No. 1 in California, New Courses



To meet the demand for San Diego State University’s Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) graduate program – ranked No. 1 in California and No. 24 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report – SDSU will offer two new courses in its online Speech-Language Pathology Essentials program during the spring 2017 semester.

Spring 3-unit courses are SLHS 300 Introduction to Language Science and SLHS 320 Phonetics.

? -- SLHS 300 Introduction to Language Science includes structure, acquisition, processing, and neurological organization of language in typical and disordered communication.
? -- SLHS 320 Phonetics covers principles of speech production and practical skills in discriminating and transcribing sounds of various dialects in English and other languages, as well as clinical populations.

Marin Fisher — an SDSU alumna with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology —completed the first two courses offered when the program debuted during the fall 2016 semester: Hearing Science and Anatomy and Physiology of Speech.

“I think the biggest strength of the program would be the convenience without sacrificing the amount and quality of learning,” Fisher said. “I feel like I gained as much knowledge in the eight weeks as I would have in a full semester, but I was able to fit it around my schedule.

The instructors were very knowledgeable on their subjects,” she added. “They were also very responsive to emails and always got back to me in a timely manner.”

The credit program prepares students to apply to graduate programs in Speech-Language Pathology. Students may take individual courses as needed to meet prerequisite requirements for their desired graduate program.

The curriculum is non-cohort and is led by lecturers from SDSU’s SLHS department. Each eight-week online course costs $317 per unit.

The courses are offered through SDSU’s College of Health and Human Services, in conjunction with SDSU’s College of Extended Studies. The program is open to individuals not currently enrolled in an SDSU degree program.
