Bilingual/Bicultural Program Focus, MS Program in Speech and Language Pathology

As members of a leading university in New York City, the faculty and clinical staff in the program in speech-language pathology at Teachers College Columbia University have a strong commitment to educating students so that as professionals they work effectively in a multicultural world. The knowledge and skills needed to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services are integrated into our course work and clinical experiences. We understand and appreciate the value of having a multicultural student body and the richness that diversity brings to our classroom discussions and clinical experiences.
