Hi Azra,


In high school, students should take courses that exceed college entrance requirements, including advanced courses in math, science, English, and social studies. Helpful high school courses would include Anatomy and Physiology, Public Speaking, and Statistics and Probability.


This career typically requires a masters degree, but some colleges will offer a communication disorders major.
This undergraduate program typically includes courses in the following subjects:



  • Anatomy and Physiology of Speech and Hearing

  • Clinical Audiology

  • Communication Disorders

  • Diagnosis and Treatment

  • Dysphasia

  • Fluency Disorders

  • Neurology

  • Normal Language Development

  • Phonological Disorders

  • Psycholinguistics

  • Research Methods

  • Speech Science

  • Statistics

  • Techniques of Rehabilitation

  • Voice Disorders

If you are interested in becoming a speech language pathologist you should look into undergraduate programs in speech language pathology. You want to be enrolled in a curriculum that introduces you to terms that you will be using throughout your career as early as possible. The field has such a broad scope of practice that it isn't about classes, it is about application. The more concentrated the program, the easier your life will be as a new graduate trying to apply all that you have learned. Speech language pathology is a field that involves swallow physiology, cranial nerve awareness, voice and resonance, language comprehension, articulation both normal and disordered, etc. Definitely browse the program guide for SLP major holding institutions: http://www.asha.org/edfind/ and attend a NSSLHA meeting. information here> http://www.asha.org/nsslha/
