Undergraduate Program

At the undergraduate level, students receive pre-professional and professional training in the field of speech-language pathology.

Clinical Experience

Pacific is a national leader in undergraduate clinical education and one of the few speech-language pathology programs in California to offer undergraduate clinical experience.

Starting in the junior year, students obtain their observation hours in the on-campus Pacific Speech and Language Center and the nearby Scottish Rite Childhood Language Disorder Center.

During the senior year, students participate in clinic in both diagnostic and therapy sessions to supplement their academic preparation, if specific requirements are met.

Students typically receive 70 hours of clinical experience as a senior clinician.


The undergraduate experience is not just limited to coursework and fieldwork.

The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association has an active chapter at Pacific, and undergraduates are encouraged to join.

The chapter organizes fundraisers for charities and activities for community clinics.
