Communication ability is critical to quality of life, and the field of speech pathology allows you to make a difference. With a Nevada State College undergraduate degree in speech pathology, you will be equipped to work with children ages 3-21 in Nevada school. You will also be provided training to prepare you for future Master's degree work in Speech-Language Pathology. While a student in the undergraduate program, you will receive hands-on learning experiences with children, giving you essential training to assess, diagnose, and treat speech and language impairments.



Upon entering this important field, not only do you serve individuals in a significant way, you address a dire need in Nevada to fill a major shortage for speech pathologists and audiologists within the state. This deficiency is so great that the Nevada Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation (NVDETR) has listed speech language pathology on its 2016 Top 100  Occupations in Demand list.
