The 4+2 program (B.S.E. + M.S.) joins the undergraduate elementary and special education program with the graduate speech-language pathology program.
Students complete an undergraduate degree leading to a B.S.E. and NJ state certification as an elementary and a special education teacher. The undergraduate program consists of coursework in professional education; a full major in arts and sciences; five field placements in diverse education settings; and 18 credits in speech-language pathology prerequisite courses.
If students maintain an overall GPA of 3.2, as well as a 3.2 each
semester, earn a B or higher in each speech course, and are in good
standing in their field work throughout the undergraduate program, they
are granted automatic acceptance into the School of Health and Medical
Sciences two-year master's program in speech-language pathology without
MAT or GRE scores or application fees. For detailed program guidelines,
please refer to the undergraduate catalog.
The master’s degree program offers a comprehensive, lock-step curriculum consisting of five semesters of academic coursework and clinical practica in a variety of settings. Upon completion of the program, students will have gained the knowledge and skills necessary to perform as an entry level practitioner.
