Pursue this specialized, in-demand career with confidence

Earn a Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Fontbonne University, and you’ll have an exceptional foundation for graduate studies in speech-language pathology, as well as a professional life dedicated to helping people. As an undergraduate speech-language pathology (SLP) student, you will learn about the normal development of language as well as disorders of human communication and swallowing. In addition, you’ll gain real clinical experience by working with clients in the department’s speech-language clinic.

Your degree from Fontbonne will ensure you are well-prepared for graduate studies or to enter the field.
