Speech-language pathology is concerned with normal and disordered human communication and swallowing. The Department of Speech-Language offers a professional degree program and, through the new Rehabilitation Sciences Institute (RSI), research degree programs leading to careers in the discipline.
The Master of Health Science (MHSc) in Speech-Language Pathology is a full-time professional graduate program. The primary aim of the program is to prepare practitioners for entry into the practice of speech-language pathology. Graduates are prepared to assume varied professional responsibilities including the assessment, treatment, and management of speech, voice, language, and swallowing disorders. Coursework and clinical internships are integrated and sequenced in a unique modular curriculum. Additionally, students participate in the interprofessional education (IPE) curriculum for 11 health science programs at the University of Toronto. There is a strong research-to-practice focus and students complete a comprehensive portfolio requirement in their final year.
Students cannot apply to the MHSc program from the SGS website. For application information, fees, and guidelines to apply to the MHSc clinical program, please consult the ORPAS website at www.ouac.on.ca/orpas. For additional information about all of the programs offered by the Department of Speech-Language Pathology, please consult the website at www.slp.utoronto.ca.
The Master of Science degree, now offered through the Rehabilitation Sciences Institute (RSI), is a full-time program that prepares students to engage in the scientific study of normal and disordered speech, language, and swallowing processes in children and adults. The MSc is a research-oriented program and does not prepare students for clinical practice. Although the primary objective of the MSc program is to prepare students for doctoral studies in speech and language sciences, successful completion of the program does not guarantee entrance into the PhD program.
The purpose of the Doctor of Philosophy program, now also offered through the Rehabilitation Sciences Institute (RSI), is to prepare students to contribute independently to the advancement of scientific knowledge in their area of specialization within the discipline of speech-language pathology.
