For many Speech Language Pathology students, the Master of Science is a terminal degree in that they do not plan to pursue further graduate work as a Ph.D. student. Usually, the students are seeking a graduate degree that will prepare them to provide independent clinical services in Speech-Language Pathology. The clinical M.S. programs in Speech-Language Pathology at Purdue are designed so that students can meet all academic, clinical certification, licensure, and credentialing requirements of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA), the Indiana Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Board (ISLPAB), and the School Services Standard License for Speech, Language, and Hearing Clinicians and Educational Audiologists issued by the Indiana Department of Education.
It is possible to obtain a non-clinical Master of Science degree in Speech Science at Purdue University. Such a program may be appropriate for students with a primary interest in Speech Science or Linguistics, for example. Those students would not be concerned with meeting clinical certification requirements or clinical practicum experiences.
