Speech-Language Pathology Preparatory Certificate


The Speech-Language Pathology Master’s Preparatory Certificate provides students with the prerequisite coursework needed to apply to most Master’s programs in Speech-Language Pathology and Communication Sciences & Disorders. The certificate is designed for college graduates who majored in other areas but are now interested in the fast-growing field of speech-language pathology. The courses in the certificate are taught by faculty from several departments with expertise in communication sciences and disorders and related fields.

The certificate program requires 12 courses (36 units), which are designed in a two-year sequence. Students will be able to finish the program within two years if they are available to complete three courses per semester at the limited times they are offered. Therefore, being a student in this program requires you to have an open and flexible schedule during the week to take the courses in person at the CSUSB San Bernardino campus. See "Required Program Coursework" for a complete list of courses and more information.

Admission to the certificate program takes place once a year (Fall admission only), with applications due the preceding Spring semester by the deadline shown at the "How to Apply" link.

For students who wish to take this coursework while they are still completing their undergraduate degree, please see the Speech-Language Pathology Minor program.  Admission to the Minor is limited and contingent on available spaces.
