The B.S.E. in Integrated Early Childhood, Elementary and Special Education, with a Concentration in Speech-Language Pathology, joins undergraduate teacher preparation (B.S.E.) with a master's (M.S.) in speech-language pathology. If candidates maintain the dual degree requirements during the undergraduate portion of their program, they receive automatic admission into the graduate speech-language pathology program.

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) help everyone from infants to aging adults overcome communication disorders. Some SLPs work with children in schools to improve their articulation, language, fluency or voice. Others provide acute care in hospitals for patients with neurological conditions. Still others assist very young children recovering from cleft palates, feeding disorders or autism spectrum diagnoses. Accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the Seton Hall University Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology program (M.S.S.L.P.) blends clinical, research, classroom and service experiences. Thanks to this well-rounded education, Seton Hall's graduates are consistently employed within one year of completing the program, and many have job offers right away.
