The Study Programme in Speech and Language Pathology

The Division of Speech and Language Pathology is responsible for courses in the four-year Study Programme in Speech and Language Pathology at the Karolinska Institute, KI. The Study programme first started in 1964 as the first education of speech and language pathologists in Sweden. The programme leads to a degree in Speech and Language Pathology, a professional degree at advanced level. The education is multidisciplinary and includes studies in Speech and Language Pathology, Psychology, Phonetics, Linguistics and medical subjects. Clinical training under supervision is included in the education and when students have graduated they can apply for their certification to practice as a speech and language pathologist from the National Board of Health and Welfare.
