sailormina Posted October 5, 2016 Share Posted October 5, 2016 (edited) Hey guys, I was wondering if I could get some advice! I'm a resident of California, USA and I've just graduated with a B.A. in Psychology. Although I truly enjoy psychology as a subject, I know I don't necessarily want to become a "psychologist"per se. A professor of mine told me about Speech Therapy/ Speech Language Pathology before graduation, and the topic really intrigued me. After some research, I think I can see myself working in a school setting with young kids and/or teenagers! The problem is; however, in CA there are only two schools that have an SLP program (within my means of travel), and both require a degree in Communicative Disorders. There is a post-bacc program available that would need 2 years of completion before I can apply to the 3-5 year M.A. in Communicative Disorders program that leads into becoming an SLP. I joined this forum site basically to gauge anyone's opinion or advice--do you think it's worth it to endure the post-bacc; financially and time-wise? Should I maybe try for SLPA instead? Or do you know of any other fields that can combine therapy/education/health science the way speech therapy does without having to work in a hospital setting?
