START YOUR CAREER WITH YOUR SPEECH THERAPY STUDIES? OF COURSE!
For communication, language is an essential component and defines both our being and our way of acting. But what if something does not work as it should? As a speech therapist, you will examine, treat, train, and advise people to specifically promote interpersonal communication both verbally or non-verbally. The Bachelor's Programme in Speech Therapy at IU will provide you with the necessary competencies and skills to apply speech therapy reflectively and to participate in research projects. Later, you will work as a speech therapist in a clinical setting, manage a speech therapy practise, or work as a consultant in the prevention and health promotion of care and learning facilities.
Building on a specialised education, the IU programme in Speech Therapy has as its primary goal to make you a "reflective practitioner", whether it is a full-time or a part-time Bachelor's programme. You will be taught the relevant fundamentals of health economics, disciplinary and interdisciplinary management skills, and qualitative and quantitative research methods. You will also cover key topics such as speech and language, linguistic development, voice and speech flow, and neuro- and pathophysiology. You can specialise in the areas of management, didactics, prevention, and health for therapists, to further extend the knowledge you have already acquired.
Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.
