Accreditations & Accolades
The Masters program in speech-language pathology in the Department of Communication Disorders at Minot State University received its original accreditation from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) in 1965. The program has been continually accredited
since that time, and in 2012 will again be reviewed by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing
Association for reaccreditation. Both the Masters program and the undergraduate program in communication disorders are identified by the
professional community and the university administration as regional and national premier programs.
The undergraduate and graduate programs are currently housed in a state of art facility which includes private therapy rooms with video and audio monitoring, a modern voice lab, conference rooms, audiology testing booths, and a large media center and computer lab. Both programs offer opportunities for students to get clinical experiences and ASHA approved hours towards licensing and certification on campus while completing their degrees.
Students graduating with their Masters Degree in Speech-Language Pathology have consistently obtained above average scores on the national Praxis exam. These same students have a 95-100% employment rate and are currently providing services to clients in many areas of the United States and Canada.
