    About

    Completing the Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Honours) at CQUniversity will equip you with valuable skills to enable you to work with people of all ages who have communication or swallowing difficulties. Your education and training will include a broad range of disciplines such as psychology, medical sciences and linguistics and phonetics, designed to ensure you graduate work-ready.

    Completing placements in a variety of practice settings during your studies will enable you to gain valuable practical experience before you enter the workforce. This includes being part of a multidisciplinary team at the purpose-built Allied Health Clinic at CQUniversity Rockhampton where you will learn alongside students from other disciplines including occupational therapy, physiotherapy and oral health.

    On completion of this course, you will graduate with a Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Honours) qualification. As part of your final year of study, you will be required to complete a research project on a topic relevant to speech pathology.

    Accredited professional psychology pathway

    This course is an accredited three-year psychology degree with the Australia Psychology Accreditation Council, preparing you for further study in psychology.
