Graduate Program in Speech-Language Pathology

Pre-requisite Courses for Graduate School Applicants in Speech Language Pathology or Audiology

(For post-BA/BS students changing careers)

Students who have an undergraduate degree in another field, who would like to change career paths, need to take a set of pre-requisite courses in the communication sciences and disorders (CSD) major in order to meet entry requirements for masters' programs in speech-language pathology or audiology.

To take these courses at Queens College, students must do both of the following:

  1. either apply to the college as a second BA student or a non-matriculating undergraduate student and be accepted.
  2. apply for admission to the undergraduate Communication Science and Disorders major through the LCD department or Speech-Language Hearing Center, and be accepted into the major (100 Speech Pathology).

Matriculation as a second BA student provides earlier registration in classes, and the ability to register for several courses per semester at a set rate.

Admission to the undergraduate major is a competitive process. Application requires an accumulative GPA of at least 3.0 in the first BA, or in 24 college credits beyond the BA. There are several application cycles per year. See the undergraduate program page for all application deadlines. Contact the program if you have additional questions:
