Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate school has a reputation for graduating competent speech-language pathology students. We receive extensive experience in the school setting. We have two swallowing courses and an instrumentation course - which prepares us well for a medical setting academically. However, some of our resources are dated (e.g., AAC technology and testing materials). In addition, inconsistencies in ideologies between individuals at our various placements (i.e., schools, in house clinic, classes) can make the learning process arduous and frustrating. I personally have received excellent support financially and academically from specific professors and appreciate these opportunities. Overall, I feel that the positives far outweigh any minor negatives. I am satisfied with my experience and grateful for the opportunity to have been accepted into this program.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are a small graduate class that provides a unique experience and a great, personal student to teacher ratio. The classes allow for students to be interactive and work closely with one another. The cons include a lot of time and dedication to the classwork, as well as a lot of outside time needed to dedicate to preparation and planning.

Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2016

It is a really good program. I feel like I am learning a lot and receiving good experience. A con is that there is a large work load, going from clinic all day to class all night 4 das a week.

Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2015

Bloomsburg University's Speech- Language Pathology graduate program has been a wonderful experience for me. We are provided with many opportunities to gain different experiences in multiple settings, such as in schools and a clinical setting on campus. These settings provide us with greater knowledge of what we can expect when we are out in the field, working on our own. Days can be long, being that we are usually in our school placements/clinic all day and attend class every evening, but everyone works together and makes it more enjoyable, since we all have similar experiences to share! All of the faculty are very knowledgable and are more than willing to help.

Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2015

Bloomsburg University provided me with an amazing undergraduate and graduate education. Professors require their students to utilize critical thinking clinically and prepare you for your externships and future. I was always provided amazing supervision at the on campus clinic and within both school settings. Having the experience of two schools districts and caseloads prepared me for a real world experience. Bloomsburg has provided me with experiences to make a well rounded resume with two school placements, an on campus clinic, IU experience, and volunteering at an Aphasia center and Headstart. A major pro to the program is that Bloomsburg assists you with finding an externship and that you are not taking classes during your final semester while completing your externship. My externship supervisors have provided me with feedback that I appear competent and ready to "jump into" experiences, and I owe it all to my professors, supervisors, and experiences I gained at Bloomsburg. All of the professors and supervisors truly care about their students and round every student into SLP rockstars.

Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2015

Bloomsburg has an exceptional speech language pathology graduate program. The professors and clinical staff provide comprehensive training to prepare students for both medical and educational settings. The program provides the opportunity for students to gain experience in an IU, clinic outpatient setting & two different school districts. Students gain hands on experience with instrumentation in the voice lab & provide volunteer services to a local head start & aphasia center. Students are also assisted with obtaining a placement for externships during the final semester of graduate school. This program requires students to learn to manage grades, assistantships, research & clinic work at once, requiring them to learn to think on their feet & prepare for real world situations.

Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Excellent program in many regards. Very knowledgeable faculty/staff members. No difficulty accumulating ASHA hours. Excellent practice in school setting with two different school placements. Fully supported when looking for externship placement in final semester. Challenging coursework that covers all information necessary for successfully starting in the field. Cons: Small faculty leads to some difficulty receiving regular feedback regarding performance. School/clinic placement during the day and classes at night make for long days.

Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2016

This graduate program provides their students with very valuable experiences in a range of clinical placements. We get a hands on experience very early on in our graduate careers. However, the con I have is that we have a lot of clients to provide therapy for, especially at our contracted school district. I find it difficult to effectively plan and provide therapy for all the clients on my caseload.
