Overview

University of Canberra Master of Speech Language Pathology Overview

Australia wide speech pathologists are in high demand. In just two years you could be on your way to assisting people to achieve their highest quality of life at work, home and socially; irrespective of age, disability or illness.  Canberra’s newly developed program is geared to providing you with the skills necessary to deliver quality speech pathology services.  A unique aspect of Canberra’s program is the inclusion of a foundation in business skills as many speech pathologists may elect to operate their own practice.

  • apply entry-level competency based skills to deliver speech pathology practices
  • interpret and communicate professional knowledge and skills in the delivery of speech pathology practices
