Speech Pathology is the study of speech, language, communication, voice, swallowing, and fluency disorders, and the methods of their treatment. Geneva’s program is distinct in its Christian approach toward patient interaction. Graduates of Geneva’s program have experienced strong demand, with 100% of recent graduates in the last 10 years being accepted into graduate school.
In order to practice as a licensed speech pathologist, students need a master’s degree as a minimum. Geneva’s undergraduate program prepares students for entrance into graduate schools throughout the country.
