Speech, Language, Hearing Sciences - Leveling Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

This certificate allows students with a bachelor’s degree in a field other than speech, language, and hearing sciences (SLHS) to demonstrate completion of a specific sequence of foundational courses required by most graduate programs in speech-language pathology and audiology. Students who hold a leveling certificate have obtained prerequisite coursework to pursue a graduate degree in speech-language pathology or audiology.

MSU Denver prerequisites to SLHS 2530, SLHS 2890 and SLHS 3511 will be waived for certificate-seeking students. However, students who lack background in algebra, human anatomy & physiology and/or English grammar should consider taking recommended math, linguistics and/or biology prerequisites. SLHS leveling courses must be taken in a prescribed sequence. Students should contact an SLHS program advisor to obtain a transcript evaluation and more information about registration procedures.

ASHA Requirements

Prior to certification as a speech-language pathologist, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) requires that courses be taken at the undergraduate level in: a) biology, b) physics, c) statistics, and d) social/behavioral sciences. Some graduate programs will not accept students without prior completion of these courses. Students are urged to contact ASHA (asha.org) for further information.
