Speech-Language Pathology- Online
The University of Akron and the University of Cincinnati have partnered to offer the Cincinnati - Akron Collaborative Online program which is a graduate program that leads to a master's degree in speech-language pathology. Students are directly admitted to either the University of Akron or the University of Cincinnati. The program begins every January and is a consecutive 8 semester program (2 years, 8 months). It is a lock-step program so students are unable to complete the program at a different rate than the program was designed.
All courses are asynchronous, meaning that lectures and material are often recorded and available for students to view at a time that fits your schedule; however, some material may also be delivered through a "live" class chat in which students are expected to attend. The "live" class chats are generally scheduled during evenings according to Eastern Standard Time (EST). Although asynchronous, all deadlines for assignments and exams are expected to be met. Students complete coursework online during each semester of the program.
Admission to the University of Cincinnati for this program REQUIRES that you live within a 4 hour radius of the University of Cincinnati as we are not able to support clinical supervision from greater distances. Clinical placements begin in the third semester; therefore, students are only able to maintain their full-time work schedule during the first two semesters (Spring 1, Summer 1). Students are responsible for prioritizing the graduate program and clinical schedule over their work schedule.
We currently do not offer assistantship opportunities for the online/distance learning master’s program.
