The Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (COMSC), its offices, clinic and classes, are housed at Hunter College's East 25th Street campus known as the Brookdale Health Sciences Campus in Manhattan.

The curriculum is designed as a full-time program to be completed in two years including at least one summer. Degrees must be completed within five years after commencing classes. The first year curriculum requires participation in daytime class and clinic/practicum attendance. The second year requires daytime participation in practicum as well as day and evening classes. There are no weekend classes or weekend externships. The curriculum is "step-locked" meaning that students must complete the courses in the sequence offered.

Successful completion of the SLP curriculum prepares students to meet the academic and clinical requirements to apply for American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Professional Certification and New York State Licensure.
