Audiology and Speech Sciences
Master of Science
The School of Audiology and Speech Sciences (SASS) in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC is the only program in British Columbia that educates speech-language pathologists and audiologists. The School offers a Master of Science degree and a Doctor of Philosophy degree.
The School gives students a strong theoretical foundation, equipping them with problem-solving abilities that will last throughout their careers. The academic component is enhanced by externships: real-life experience in the field, where students learn and work alongside practitioners. State-of-the-art teaching labs, research, and study areas create an ideal learning space, while the city of Vancouver provides an enjoyable and beautiful locale.
