Candidates for admission must hold at least a four-year Bachelor’s Degree (an honours degree is a strong asset) with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.3 (B+ average) in the last two years of study from a university of recognized standing. The programs are designed for students with either minimal or no previous academic experience in the area of speech-language pathology or audiology. In most cases, applicants should have undergraduate degrees in such areas of study as psychology, biology, health sciences, kinesiology, nursing, linguistics, or education. However, students with other backgrounds will also be considered if they have completed courses in one or more of the following topics: human biology or physiology, acoustics, developmental psychology, gerontology, learning theory or abnormal psychology, speech perception, psychoacoustics, or other areas of language or linguistics. There are no specific prerequisite courses for admission into our programs. Students whose undergraduate degree is in either speech-language pathology or audiology may be considered for entrance into the program at a more advanced level under exceptional circumstances only.
