Our Speech Language Pathology On-Campus Master’s program has been preparing clinicians to serve children, youth, and adults with communication disorders for nearly 50 years.

The program requires 66 credit hours (34 credits in academic course work and 32 credits in clinical course work) and provides a lifespan approach for advanced study of language, speech, swallowing, non-speech communication systems, and hearing in persons of all ages.

The UNCG Speech and Hearing Center focuses on the assessment and treatment of adults and children with communication disorders. This clinical setting provides students with a broad range of educational, clinical and research experiences.

The department and our students impact the community through participation in research and clinical activities. Graduate students also volunteer their time and energy to organize, fundraise and support organizations such as the Brain Injury Association of North Carolina. These efforts help to increase community awareness of communication disorders including brain injury and to raise funds for thousands of individuals in the state who are living with the chronic effects of brain injury

Student Voices

UNC Greensboro Communication Sciences & Disorders student, Allison Buroker, shares why she chose the Speech Pathology program at UNCG.


The U.S. Department of Education requires that all higher education institutions advise students as to whether their curriculum provides them with the eligibility to apply for a professional license and/or certification in the state for which they plan to practice. As such, please review UNC Greensboro’s status by state (PDF) for our Master program in Speech-Language Pathology. You should note whether the program either “meets” or “does not meet”, the program’s status in the state for which you plan to practice.   The University of North Carolina Greensboro believes this information to be accurate, but final eligibility decisions rest with individual licensure authorities.
