Student's Perspective

"As a former Exploratory major, I came into the program my sophomore year. I was attracted by the scientific and psychological aspects of speech-pathology that allowed me to pursue those interests without quite the intensity of medical school. I wanted a career that offered a variety of ways to help others. The possibilities were exciting: working with babies with cleft palates in a hospital, individuals who have had strokes, or children in schools just to name a few! I've been able to study abroad, acquire music and psychology minors and still meet all the requirements with time for many electives. Basically, it's a career that is very adaptable to an individual's interests and goals. And I've never met a speech-pathologist I didn't like!"
