Professional Certification

All graduate students in speech pathology are required to meet the academic and clinical experience requirements set by the ASHA for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology prior to completion of the master's degree. The academic course work and clinical practicum experiences are sequenced so that the student meets the academic and clinical training requirements for the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) in speech pathology prior to graduation. Speech pathology course work is offered in adult and child language disorders, neurological disorders, phonology, stuttering, cleft palate, diagnostic procedures, speech science, voice disorders, and research methodology. In addition to clinical practicum experiences obtained through the Louisiana Tech Speech and Hearing Center located on campus, graduate students obtain practicum experiences in a variety of off-campus clinical sites in order to earn the clinical clock hours required for certification. Students should be aware that it is necessary that they be assigned to affiliated off-campus clinical training sites in order to earn the clinical clock hours required for certification. Each student is responsible for transportation and his/her own expenses when assigned to one of these sites.
