The American Speech-Language Association is the leading organization when it comes to speech pathology in the United States, and they state that to work as a speech pathologist you will need:

2 years of post graduate work

A completed clinical fellowship year

Which is generally employment for a year while supervised by a practicing SLP who is also ASHA certified

And passing the Praxis Series examination

The graduate degree work to acquire a master's in Speech-Language Pathology is rigorous and demanding, requiring many hours of supervised clinical practice, and intensive didactic coursework in medical sciences, phonetics, linguistics, phonology, scientific methodology, and other subjects.

After doing a little searching, I have found one degree that is an excellent place to start your path: Bachelor of Arts in Health Care Studies - Speech and Language Therapy
