Degree Programme in Logopedics

Logopedics (speech-language pathology) is a discipline combining humanistic and behavioural sciences. The societal meaning of logopedics is based on its specifically humane research interests, namely the efforts to support people with communication difficulties.
The theoretical and methodological studies in the education programme in logopedics are combined with studies in diagnostics and rehabilitation of speech, language, voice and communication disorders, as well as eating and swallowing difficulties. Studies in social sciences, medicine, linguistics and psychology enhance the understanding of the multifaceted problems met in clinical studies. The Master's level studies culminate in an individually written but supervised research thesis and a four months long supervised clinical practicum.
Studies in logopedics serve as optional studies for students of education, psychology and social work, as well as for any students who need knowledge and understanding of the importance of human interaction and communication in modern society, and what it means to an individual when he or she does not develop normally or looses the skills of communication and participation in social and societal activities.

The majority of teaching is in Finnish, but some of the courses in master's programme are possible to complete in English by taking a book exam. Arrangments must be negotiated with the teacher in charge of the course in question.”
