About the Speech Pathology study programme

    • Language: English

    The goal of the international Master’s Speech Pathology is to broaden and deepen your theoretical and practical knowledge.

    You will undertake advanced speech pathology practicums related to swallowing function, motor speech and voice, and communication participation through rehabilitation. 

    The programme concludes with a clinical research project related to aged or neurological disorders designed to impact patient care. 

    Discipline-specific workshops, workplace practicums and clinical research will foster advanced knowledge, skills, and applications for the optimal management of older adults, people ageing with a disability and those with neurological disorders/acquired brain injury (ABI). 

    You can tailor your studies

    The programme structure is flexible. You can choose from several pathway options, which gives you the opportunity to tailor your studies so you can achieve your career aspirations.

    Depending on your desired career direction, there are two pathways you can choose between:

    • Optimising motor, speech and voice function 
    • Advanced speech pathology practicum 3: optimising language function

    Combine your clinical experience with new theory

    Each module offers you the opportunity to work theoretically on the basis of your personal, professional and clinical experiences. This is true regardless of whether you have worked with clinical specialties, management, education or development.

    The programme allows you to tailor your education from the point of view of your practice. Each student will find different modules that reflect their own practice.

    Please read more about the unit structure and content on Australian Catholic University’s website.
