Hailey Spencer, recent graduate of the Speech Language Hearing Sciences program.

I recently graduated and I am starting UC's Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology program in the fall. I chose UC's SLHS program because of all the opportunities available to me. There are so many clinics, hospitals, and schools located very close to UC's campus that would allow me to have in-person and hands-on opportunities in my field before graduating. I also liked UC's emphasis on experiential learning, and how this is woven into our coursework.
