MS in Speech-Language Pathology

Our speech-language pathology master’s degree prepares you to become a speech-language pathologist (SLP) with knowledge and skills that exceed national standards. Our program will inspire you to become a life-long learner and a leader in the field.

We offer two program options: On-campus and distance learning.

Careers & Salaries

Our accredited program prepares you to apply for Texas licensure and to earn the Certificate of Clinical Competence. These credentials open up a variety of speech-language pathologist career opportunities, such as working in a medical facility, school or a private healthcare service agency.

While salaries can vary, the median salary for an SLP is $74,680, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employment options for SLPs are growing much faster than those for most other healthcare-related professions.
