The Master of Science (MS) degree program in speech-language pathology is a two-year (5 semesters) graduate study grounded in a unique curricular specification and community-based clinical training with a medical focus.
The University of Texas System Office of Health Affairs and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) approved the MS-SLP program in 2016, and the ASHA-CAA completed an on-site candidacy review on May 18, 2017. The next ASHA-CAA decision-making meeting will be held in mid-July when the program's accreditation candidacy will be evaluated. The MS-SLP program expects to matriculate the first cohort of students as soon as it receives candidacy accreditation from CAA and approval from SACSCOC . We anticipate having more information available soon.
