    Program in Speech-Language Pathology

    The Program in Speech-Language Pathology offers an innovative five-year plan which culminates with the Master of Science Degree. Students who complete the plan fulfill academic course work and clinical practicum requirements for the Texas License, as well as, the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology. The plan includes 96 semester hours of undergraduate course work and 54 semester hours of graduate course work, all of which may be completed in five years. Undergraduate students selecting this program will be designated as pre-Speech-Language Pathology majors. Since the plan of study culminates with the Master of Science Degree, undergraduates should be aware of the following.

    1. A GPA of 3.0 in upper-division preparatory SPLP undergraduate courses and GRE scores of 500 Verbal and 500 Analytical are required for acceptance into the Graduate School. A GPA higher than 3.0 may offset GRE scores lower than the specified minimums and GRE scores higher than the specified minimums may offset a GPA lower than 3.0. A description of the Master of Science program is in the Graduate Studies Catalog. Admission is competitive. The number of students admitted each semester is dependent on available program resources.
    2. Undergraduate students must take the GRE and apply to Graduate School prior to the completion of the prescribed 96 undergraduate hours.
    3. Students whose grades in SPLP courses do not appear to demonstrate the potential for success in Graduate School should discuss the advisability of continuing in the Speech-Language Pathology Program with their advisor prior to beginning the third year.
