The only program in British Columbia to educate audiologists and speech-language pathologists, the School of Audiology and Speech Sciences (SASS) offers a solid academic foundation, valuable opportunities for practical experience, and a stunning location in which to study.
The School gives students a strong theoretical foundation, equipping them with problem-solving abilities that will last throughout their careers. The academic component is enhanced by externships: real-life experience in the field, where students learn and work alongside practitioners. State-of-the-art teaching labs, research, and study areas create an ideal learning space, while the city of Vancouver provides an enjoyable and beautiful locale.
As a graduate department, the School offers two degrees. The Master of Science is the basis for certification as an audiologist or speech-language pathologist.The Doctor of Philosophy degree provides students with the credentials to specialize academically.
