The Master of Science (M.S.) education program in speech-language pathology (residential) at Boston University is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), 2200 Research Boulevard, #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.

At Boston University’s College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences: Sargent College, your education will include a rare combination of clinical, academic, and research opportunities.
