Howard University, the historically Black educational institution in Washington, D.C., has announced the establishment of an accelerated duel-degree program in speech-language pathology.
The new program will be offered by the department of communication sciences and disorders in the School of Communication. The interim chair of the department is Joan C. Payne, who has served on the faculty at Howard for more than 40 years. She is the author of Adult Neurogenic Language Disorders Assessment and Treatment: A Comprehensive Ethnobiological Approach (Plural Publishing, 2014).
Students will need at least a 3.5 grade point average in order to apply to the program. Students can complete both preprofessional undergraduate and a master’s degree in speech-language pathology in five years.
