Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders


We train speech-language pathologists in a nationally accredited program and offer students active learning through the on-campus Speech-Language and Hearing Clinic.

Students can earn bachelor's and master's degrees in speech-language pathology. A master's degree is the entry-level requirement to practice as a speech-language pathologist in the United States.

Our high quality, comprehensive clinic services in speech-language pathology and audiology have been a community asset for nearly seven decades. Our students train and work in the clinic and have opportunities for community engagement.

The Master of Science (M.S.) Communication Sciences and Disorders education program in speech-language pathology at St. Cloud State University is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard, #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.
