The Audiology and Speech-language Pathology Graduate School Masterlist is available for download:
Disclaimer: Each student is responsible to ensure their academic choices fulfill graduate school requirements. Note this master list should serve as a guide, but not a checklist for success. Please talk to your academic advisor should you have questions about audiology or speech-language pathology.
This document is created for Simon Fraser University (SFU) students who are wishing to become an audiologist or speech language pathologist. It lists every master’s program that is available in English at Canadian universities. Note that a few programs in French are available. In reviewing each university, note that some sections may be approximations of details, for instance, in the application fee or the deadline sections. These values also frequently change; be wary of the year of this document’s release. Additionally, the prerequisites section for some universities may permit more classes than are listed—these were confirmed over email correspondence, but each student should personally confirm class eligibility with each university to which they want to apply. Often, these universities accept classes from general categories; the linguistics general category at McGill University, for example, accepts most courses with the LING label at SFU. The prerequisites section also lists credit requirements in brackets after each required category. McGill requires three credits of statistics background; this is listed as Statistics (3): PSYC 210. Finally, there are footnotes available at the bottom of the page for each university if there are important considerations to be made. For up-to-date information, students are encouraged to visit official websites and speak to academic advisors.
Non-native English speakers should be aware that all the master’s programs in Canada require English proficiency testing in some form. Required scores on each test differ between schools—be sure to know each of these requirements. Students should know that a four-year baccalaureate is required for all master’s programs.

The Speech and Hearing Club are indebted to the students who have contributed to this document. All of our efforts combined have culminated in a Graduate School Master List worthy of distribution. We would also like to acknowledge the Coast Salish Nations of Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish, and Kwikwetlem, on whose traditional and unceded territory we conduct our work at SFU.
We would next like to thank Lisa Nguyen and Felicia Tong, the authors of the original spreadsheet on which we founded this document. This master spreadsheet is situated on their blog dedicated to speech science, called Reach for the Speech. Other thanks are given to Maëlle Ernestine and Annika Fong, who aided in adding, updating, and organizing the information in the master spreadsheet.
Finally, only from the ambitions of the members of the Speech and Hearing Club at SFU—Kira Bondi, Larissa Melville, Jasmine Piao, Crystal Su, Samantha Sundby, Rachel Wang, and Teneille Williams—was this document possible.
