St. Mary's College is offering something new

St. Mary's college is offering something new.  A master's of science program in speech pathology.

The program was announced Wednesday at a dedication of the new Judd Leighton Speech and Language Clinic on the campus. That clinic opened up this past fall, thanks to a one million dollar grant, which also helped support the new master's program.

The chair of the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders says the addition of the clinic and program is exciting for Northern Indiana.  "We have an extreme shortage of qualified speech language pathologist in the region and the addition of this clinical facility will allow for our students to have very intense training in speech pathology," said Michael Flahive 

The master's program in speech pathology will start in the Fall of 2015.  According to the college, it will be the only such graduate program offered in Northern Indiana.
