This is a 114-hour post-baccalaureate four-year degree and includes:

  • 70–78 semester hours of academic courses, plus
  • 44 semester hours of clinic courses and a clinic externship in the fourth year.

In most circumstances, all academic course work is to be completed in three years. Students in their fourth year of the program will complete a clinical residency. Prior to beginning the clinical residency, all students are required to complete a directed research project or its equivalent and pass comprehensive, formative, and summative examinations.

In conjunction with the Department of Rehabilitation and Health Services, the department offers a concentration in audiology and speech-language pathology under the Health Services Research, PhD .
