BS Habilitation of the Deaf & Hard of Hearing

The Davies School of Communication Sciences & Disorders offers a BS in deaf and hard of hearing studies (DHHS). This program leads to a Major in Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Studies, usually with a Minor in Educational Studies. This degree program DOES NOT lead to TEA Certification and therefore does not enable graduates to teach DHH students.

BS Speech-Language Pathology

This undergraduate program prepares students for a career in speech-language pathology or audiology and meets the standards for certification as a speech-language pathologist or audiologist as outlined by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. In Texas and some other states, students with a BS in speech-language pathology may also obtain partial requirements for licensure as a speech-language pathology assistant, which is an alternative career option. Additional information about the Texas state requirements for a career as a speech-language pathology assistant can be found at the Texas State Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology website.


A minor in communication sciences & disorders is also available with a focus in either speech-language pathology or habilitation of the deaf & hard of hearing.

MS Speech-Language Pathology

The Davies School of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers an MS in speech-language pathology with an optional emphasis in bilingual speech-language pathology. Graduate studies in speech-language pathology offer an exciting array of academic and clinical experiences that lead to eligibility for the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence and state licensure as a speech-language pathologist.

For more information, visit MS in Speech-Language Pathology or MS in Emphasis in Bilingual Speech-Language Pathology.
