M.S. Program Requirements

In order to apply for the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence, students must complete all program, academic and practicum requirements, which include: successful completion of the department’s academic, supervised practicum, and research requirements, as well as passing the comprehensive examination.  Successful completion of the program does not itself insure certification and/or licensure.  Each student is responsible for familiarizing himself/herself with the applicable certification and licensure requirements.


Undergraduate course work in mathematics (college algebra or higher) and in biological, physical, and behavioral sciences is required. A course in statistics is required. If you do not have a bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders, ten pre-professional courses must be taken prior to admission into the program.
