Pre-Speech Language Pathology

Did you know: Speech-language pathologists identify, assess, and treat speech and language problems. Quick Facts: 5% to 10% of Americans may have communication disorders, costing the U.S. approximately $154–186 billion annually.

To become a speech language pathologist, a student must complete a master’s degree in this field. While Boise State does not offer a speech-language pathology Bachelor’s or Master’s, pre-health advisors can assist students in determining the most efficient route to pursue this career.

Additionally, Boise State University has partnered with Idaho State University. Interested students will complete two years of coursework at Boise State University and then apply to the Idaho State University Undergraduate Communication Sciences and Disorders degree with an emphasis in Speech-Language Pathology at the Meridian or Pocatello Campuses.
