Speech & Language Therapy - Bachelor

Speech therapy - more than just speaking

In the speech therapy programme, students acquire a wide range of subject-specific competences, methodological competences and also interprofessional competences as well as social-communicative skills. In addition to the extensive theoretical content, theory-practice transfer is already implemented in the courses so that students can continuously develop the skills they need from the beginning of their studies.


Speak, hear and understand language with voice

Introductory basic lectures in the areas of anatomy and physiology as well as linguistics form the basis on which more advanced topics are built. These include audiology, phoniatrics, neurology and numerous logopaedics-specific and scientific courses. Equipped with these competences, students have the opportunity to deepen their already acquired skills in practice: in the SkillsLabs of the speech therapy degree programme, which are unique in Austria.


State-of-the-art equipment is available there, which is indispensable in speech therapy and which is used for practice in small groups. Methods and processes can be deepened in a safe environment, and empirical studies within the framework of Bachelor's theses also take place here. The practice-related courses prepare students for the professional internships, which form an important part of the degree programme from the second semester to the sixth semester.

The possibility to complete professional internships in all areas relevant to speech therapy in different settings is just as extensive as the professional practice as a speech therapist after graduation: institutions of the health, social and educational system, clinics, therapy centres or freelance work, among others, are open to students or graduates of the bachelor's degree programme in speech therapy.

After the bachelor's degree in speech therapy, however, the academic career can still be pursued: the FH Carinthia is the only university of applied sciences that also offers a master's degree programme in speech therapy.
