About the department (aka, COMSC)

The Department of Speech-Language Pathology & 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 residential program (meaning that the majority of classes are in-person) to be completed in two years including summers. 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 late afternoon 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.

The Master of Science (M.S.) education program in speech-language pathology (residential) at Hunter College has been placed on probation by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard, #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700. A program on probation is not currently in full compliance with the accreditation standards. Programs on probation remain accredited but must demonstrate compliance with the standards within one year.
