All students are required to take courses in statistics as well as the biological, physical, and social/behavioral sciences (Standard IV-A) prior to graduating from the Master's program in SLP. The CFCC announced changes to the SLP certification standards, including a modification to Standard IV-A, in which the physical science requirement must be met by completing coursework in the areas of either chemistry or physics. This change pertains only to applicants who apply under the 2020 SLP standards.
