Curriculum

A graduate student in the speech-language pathology program, on average, can expect to accumulate 25 – 50 ASHA clock hours per semester when assigned to the TTUHSC Speech & Hearing Clinic and 85 clock hours per semester at an externship such as a public school, hospital, early childhood intervention program, rehabilitation facility or home health agency. The course schedule is designed such that each entering class of graduate students moves through the course sequence at the same time.

There are no course electives available to specialize in a particular area. The opportunity to pursue a particular area of interest comes with a choice of placement for clinical practicum experiences.

The speech-language pathology program offers a thesis option OR a written comprehensive examination (“comps”) option.
