Master of Science (MSc) Admission Requirements/Deadline

All applicants must possess a minimum of a baccalaureate degree from a recognized institution of higher education. An Honours degree is a strong asset.

The programs are designed for students with either minimal or no previous academic experience in the area of speech-language pathology or audiology. In most cases, applicants should have undergraduate degrees in such areas of study as psychology, biology, health sciences, kinesiology, nursing, linguistics, or education. However, students with other backgrounds will also be considered if they have completed courses in one or more of the following topics: human biology or physiology, acoustics, developmental psychology, gerontology, learning theory or abnormal psychology, speech perception, psychoacoustics, or other areas of language or linguistics. There are no specific prerequisite courses for admission into our programs. Students whose undergraduate degree is in either speech-language pathology or audiology may be considered for entrance into the program at a more advanced level under exceptional circumstances only.

Students must have attained a minimum of a B+ average in the last two years of undergraduate work to be considered for admission. A Graduate Record Exam (GRE) score is required for all applicants. Two academic letters of recommendation from professors in the student's undergraduate major will be required as well as a personal statement. Applicants must indicate their preference for either audiology or speech-language pathology.

Application deadline is January 15 for September admission
