Objectives: Since 1988, when the Department of Speech-Language Pathology was first established at a university, a large number of speech-language pathologists (SLPs) have been trained. As of March 2018, there are 87 programs in 50 schools offering associate’s degree, bachelor’s degree, and/or master’s/doctoral degree. In order to support the continued growth of the SLP programs, we believe it is necessary to assess the present operation status of all SLP programs. In this study, therefore, we surveyed the current curriculum of each program, and tried to lay out future direction that the SLP programs need to pursue. Methods: We sent out the questionnaires twice to all the programs. The questionnaires included the following: information about the program (e.g., number of faculty members), the status of the existing curriculum during the period of 2015-2017 academic years, and the curriculum improvement proposals from the program faculty members. After excluding the schools that did not respond or filled the questionnaire incorrectly, the contents of the first and second questionnaires were analyzed on 43 programs and 33 programs, respectively. Results: The questionnaire responses revealed that there were relatively larger number of curriculum subjects in associate’s degree programs than bachelor’s degree programs because the associate’s degree programs tended offer other certification courses in conjunction with the SLP program. It was also found that some SLP programs limited number of students in a class to offer better student support and offered different sets of electives and mandatory courses. In the analysis of the curriculum improvement proposals, it was found that the most common keywords included ‘school age’, ‘elderly/aging’, ‘augmentative and alternative communication’, and ‘IT (information technology)’. Conclusion: In this study, we provide the picture of the current SLP programs in Korea. The results of this study could be used as the basis for the SLP programs’ continued improvement in the future.
