Northeastern University (NU) is located in Boston, Massachusetts. The Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Department is housed within NU’s Bouve College of Health Sciences. NU currently operates on a quarter-based system, offering 10-week courses in the fall, winter, and spring. In the summer, two sessions of intensive 5-week courses are offered. In fall 2003, NU is converting to a semester-based system.
NU has three speech-language pathology programs: a 4-year combined speech-language pathology and audiology undergraduate program, which leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in Communicative Sciences and Disorders; a traditional 2-year speech-language pathology graduate program, which leads to a Master of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology; and a 5-year accelerated program, at the end of which the graduating student receives Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Speech-Language Pathology. NU’s programs are accredited by ASHA.
