MA-SLP | MA | Ph.D. | Au.D. | Au.D. / Ph.D.
|We offer programs of study in the speech, language, and hearing sciences. This includes clinical education in speech and language pathology and audiology. There are also opportunities related to neuroscience and cognitive science. Students can pursue graduate degrees in areas such as speech and language pathology, diagnostic and rehabilitative audiology, speech and language acquisition, augmentative and alternative communication, speech and hearing physiology, psychoacoustics, bioacoustics, and neuroscience. As professionals and behavioral scientists, students study the receptive and productive aspects of normal and pathological communication. Our clinical education programs in speech pathology and audiology lead to professional credentials, the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC), by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Both our Master’s program in speech-language pathology and our Au.D. programs are fully accredited.

In-state tuition for MA-SLP and AuD students
The MA-SLP and AuD programs at the University of Colorado at Boulder are in a new program that will allow in-state tuition if a student is a resident of one of 15 western states. Qualifying students are residents of Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, or Wyoming. Students who come from one of these states and are accepted into either the MA-SLP or AuD program are eligible for in-state tuition when they begin their studies.

SLHS Graduate Clinical Program Fee
The Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences has implemented a program fee in order to maintain the quality of the outstanding graduate clinical programs we offer. Without these funds, the department would need to significantly reduce the number of students we can train. It is important that the department produce the number of well trained audiologists and speech-language pathologists that we do because
a) there is a shortage of these professionals in the state of Colorado and in the nation
The program fee for students enrolled in the Doctorate of Audiology (AuD) program is $535 per semester they are enrolled in clinical practicum courses. The program fee for students enrolled in the Master of Arts (M.A.) program is $1,255 per semester they are enrolled in clinical practicum courses.
