Course outline

The Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Honours) prepares students to help people of all ages with speech, language, fluency and voice disorders, people who have feeding or swallowing difficulties, and people who want to modify their accents or voices. Students learn about anatomy, linguistics, physiology, psychology, swallowing and communication disorders in the areas of voice, fluency, hearing, speech, and language function.
