Help others find their voice. Our ability to communicate clearly and enjoy food or drink are things we can take for granted. But people of all ages can experience difficulties with these seemingly simple tasks, and the effects can be devastating. Speech pathologists don't just help correct these issues, they improve quality of life. Launch your career in this rewarding field of health with La Trobe's Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Honours). You'll develop an understanding of the anatomy behind speech and swallowing impairments and provide therapeutic treatment and management options. Build hands-on skills with approximately 1,000 hours of placement on-campus and in clinics across Victoria.
