he Faculty of Health Sciences' Audiology and Speech- Language Pathology Program is a graduate-level program leading to the Master of Health Sciences (MSc) degree in Audiology or Speech-Language Pathology. It offers specialized training in the field of communication disorders and aims to train competent health professionals to meet the needs of the Francophone population of Ontario and, more broadly, the needs of Francophone communities in the bilingual and multicultural Canadian context.

The Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Program offers two streams of graduate study: audiology and speech-language pathology. The speech-language pathology stream of the program aims to train professionals who have expertise in the field of normal development of human communication and who evaluate and treat disorders of speech, language and oropharyngeal function. Speech-language pathologists work in a variety of settings, such as hospitals, schools, and rehabilitation centers. They work with preschool and school-aged children as well as with adolescents, adults, and seniors. Their professional activities include testing, assessment, counseling, managing care, rehabilitation, training, consulting with other professionals, research, teaching and administration.
