Bachelor's Degree and Minor in Speech-Language Pathology/Audiology
The bachelor's degree is a pre-professional degree for persons wishing to pursue graduate study in speech-language pathology and audiology. The master's degree is required to be licensed in Texas and for clinical certification by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Beginning in the year 2007, the Doctor of Audiology will be the entry level degree needed to practice audiology.
The pre-professional program provides basic preparation in the normal development and functioning of speech, language, and hearing, and introductory courses concerned with communication disorders and appropriate remedial procedures. Clinical activities are scheduled concurrently with academic progress and involve diagnostic and therapeutic interaction with speech, language and hearing handicapped individuals under closely supervised conditions. Satisfactory completion of the master's programs or the professional doctorate program enables individuals to meet the academic and clinical practicum requirements for ASHA's Certificate of Clinical Competence and the state of Texas license in speech-language pathology and/or audiology.
