The College of Saint Rose graduate program in Communication Sciences & Disorders is designed to provide future speech-language pathologists with the professional expertise and sensitivity they need to handle the challenges of the field. The program is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and is approved by New York State Education Department to license speech-language pathologists and to certify teachers of students with speech and language disabilities.
This professional education program is recognized by their respective Program Associations and satisfies the academic and clinical requirements for ASHA certification, NYS license, and NYS teacher certification (Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities).
