For almost 50 years, the School's M.Sc. program has provided students with an education that is grounded in the basic and applied sciences, can address complex communication problems within an interdisciplinary framework, and understand the relevance of theory in research as well as in clinical practice. The MSc program offers graduates an entry-level degree to practice as an Audiologist or a Speech-Language Pathologist. Studying in state-of-the-art teaching and research labs with outstanding faculty prepares students to be confident practitioners who are effective, in-demand, and equipped with the skills to pursue new knowledge and keep pace with the constant changes in science, practice and technology. The clinical education program strives to provide each student with experience in all aspects of the major professional area (audiology or speech-language pathology) as well as a foundation of clinical experience in the other area.

Students pick either the Audiology or Speech Pathology stream:

Audiology

Audiology is the health profession that investigates hearing science, and that involves the diagnosis and management of hearing loss and balance disorders. It includes a wide variety of subjects, including: acoustics; noise pollution; diseases and defects of the ear; effects of hearing loss on speech and language development; hearing aids and assistive listening devices. Audiologists work with patients of all ages, from newborns to centenarians. They work in a variety of settings, from private practices, to publicly-funded health and education sites.

Speech Pathology

Speech-language pathology is the health profession that is grounded in the study of developmental and acquired communication and swallowing disorders. It includes the assessment and management of such disorders. Speech-language pathologists work with people of all ages whose disorders may include delayed speech and language development, neurologically-based speech and language impairment, stuttering, voice and/or swallowing disorders. Speech-language pathologists often work as part of a team, working alongside teachers, physicians, audiologists, psychologists, social workers, rehabilitation counselors and others.

What makes the program unique?

The School of Audiology and Speech Sciences (SASS) in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC is the only accredited M.Sc. program in British Columbia that educates speech-language pathologists and audiologists.

SASS offers clinical externships, ensuring that you experience clinical settings that reflect the diverse realities of practice. Externships are taught by experienced clinicians who understand the needs of student-clinicians, clients and their families.

SASS faculty are internationally renowned for their research. In addition to mentoring and training M.Sc. and Ph.D. students, faculty members are regularly sought after to provide specific expertise. They often introduce cutting-edge techniques used by clinicians and institutions throughout B.C., across Canada, and around the world.

The School is widely known for its education and training that integrate foundational knowledge, research, and evidence-based practical skills. This learning experience allows individuals to adapt to changes throughout their career as an audiologist, a speech-language pathologist, and/or academic. In addition, our graduates develop a working knowledge and respectful appreciation of cultural and linguistic differences, and they learn to engage in culturally safe and competent clinical practice with people of all backgrounds.

Career options

The combination of a solid evidence-based education, externships in actual clinical settings, and interaction with world-class faculty ensures that our graduates consistently score above average in national certification exams, and become knowledgeable and effective practitioners and/or academics. Many graduates receive job offers before they graduate. The majority are currently working in health authorities, school districts, and private clinics throughout B.C. and across Canada. The School’s graduates have been very successful in finding work within their chosen profession.
