From the Chair
The Department offers both baccalaureate and masters degree programs. The B.A. program in Speech Pathology and Audiology provides students with fundamental knowledge related to normal and abnormal speech and language and basic communication processes within the context of a liberal arts education.
The M.A. program in Speech-Language Pathology prepares students for professional careers as speech-language pathologists. Graduates of the M.A. program meet the academic and clinical education standards established by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP) and the New York State Education Department (NYSED) for the License in Speech-Language Pathology. The graduate program in the Department of Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences at Lehman College is directed by Dr. Liat Seiger-Gardner and is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
Under new leadership in the Department, we will continue to provide students with strong pre-professional preparation and clinical and theoretical education in the communication sciences. As Chair, I am committed to our students’ personal and professional development and, with the support of my faculty, will emphasize to our students the importance of maintaining the highest standards of integrity and ethical principles in both their professional and personal lives.
