Help treat communication disorders — and change lives

Communication is vital to our shared social experience. But for many — such as children with autism, trauma survivors, stroke patients, and the aging population — there may be significant barriers to everyday communication. In fact, as many as 10% of Americans may live with a speech, communication, and/or hearing disorder that may affect their ability to interact socially.*

With your online Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Maryville, you can be part of the solution and make a life-changing impact for your patients or students. Our program is designed to help you prepare for a rewarding career in speech-language pathology where you can help people develop, retain, or recover their ability to communicate effectively. We designed our program based on the Big 9 areas of expected competencies established by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and the Council on Academic Accreditation for Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA), so your online graduate degree can prepare you to thrive in this field — and help others participate more fully in society.

Speech-language pathology can be a rewarding career. In fact, U.S. News & World Report ranked it the No. 7 best job in America for 2021. This is your chance to help patients find their voice and make meaningful connections — and we can help you do it. Let’s be brave together.
