Come along to our Psychology and Speech Pathology information evening on 11 October to speak to the experts about your options in undergraduate and postgraduate speech pathology.
Speech pathologists are specialists who diagnose, treat and provide management services to people of all ages with communication disorders, including speech, language, voice, fluency and literacy difficulties, or people who have physical problems with eating or swallowing.
The course aims to develop your understanding of typical communication development, developmental and acquired communication and swallowing disorders, clinical practice in speech pathology, clinical measurement, and research.
Your studies will focus on five main areas of human communication science: clinical science, cognitive neuroscience, human communication science, research methods and speech and hearing science.
You can apply your learning during supervised clinical practice in the on- campus clinic and in professional practice settings. During the course you will have the opportunity to experience working in an interprofessional team.
