Baldwin Wallace's two-year Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) program provides integrated learning that combines classroom rigor with comprehensive clinical practice, leading to a professional career as a speech therapist in a variety of healthcare, education and private practice settings. 100% of BW's graduating cohorts (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2023) passed the Praxis exam in Speech-Language Pathology and have launched rewarding careers in Ohio and nationwide.

Located in Northeast Ohio — a nationally recognized center for the healthcare industry - BW provides exceptional opportunities for clinical practice that incorporate a wide range of communication disorders, ages and settings. Baldwin Wallace is home to the only free speech clinic in the Greater Cleveland area. With a commitment to global literacy, BW SLP students travel with their classmates to Zambia, Africa, to observe, work and collaborate with local practitioners.

 "I chose Baldwin Wallace University because of their drive to develop speech-language pathologists who are well-rounded in the field. Not only does the speech-language pathology department aim to build their academic knowledge, they strive to teach the clinical aspects of speech-pathology through meaningful clinical placements and opportunities to develop our clinical skills."

 "I liked that the speech-language pathology program was extremely hands-on and offered the opportunity to take our knowledge abroad to Zambia. This program provided internships in multiple settings to gain the most experience prior to deciding which setting would be the best fit for each individual."
