Speech-Language Pathology/Pathologist

Speech-language pathologists, also known as speech pathologists or speech therapists, work with people who suffer from speech-related or swallowing disorders or problems as a result of a disability, developmental delay, psychological issues, or other problems. People with such disorders and problems struggle with producing certain sounds and speech rhythms, fluency, and general voice. Speech-language pathologists help these people overcome these issues to improve their ability to communicate vocally. This field combines the teaching elements of education with the healing elements of medicine, so those interested in both fields might find an ideal balance with this major. Speech-language pathology majors can expect to take courses in areas like anatomy, communication, psychology, physiology, and language. An internship that exposes you to language, anatomy, physiology, and/or public speech will be beneficial to your academic growth and career preparation. Such internships can be found in hospitals, private practices, and schools. Most professionals in this field work in public and private schools, and others work in other environments, such as hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing care facilities, community clinics, colleges and universities, private practice offices, state and local government agencies, state and local health centers, and research laboratories.
