Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology
The goal is to produce highly qualified graduates to educate individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing and to prepare the students of speech-language pathology for graduate study.
Students qualifying for admission to the university are admissible to these programs. Retention requires majors to earn at least a grade of C in all program courses taken. Courses may be repeated, if necessary, to meet this requirement. Students with less than a 3.0 grade point average in speech-language pathology courses will enroll in clinical practicum if recommended by faculty. Failure to pass the practicum course will result in non-recommendation for graduate study in speech-language pathology study.
The program in speech-language pathology is fully accredited by the State of Oklahoma. The speech-language pathology program prepares students for certification by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) upon completion of the master’s degree.
The bachelor’s degree in speech-language pathology is a pre-professional program that provides necessary course work and clinical experiences for graduate school admission to complete the student’s professional education. Students majoring in speech-language pathology are encouraged to declare their major as sophomores. Major courses are sequenced to prepare students for supervised clinical work. Majors also complete a 12-hour minor in consultation with their advisor.
Speech-language pathology students must also complete eight credit hours of professional education courses (Educ 1101, Educ 2104, Educ 4013) at the undergraduate level and a master’s degree in speech-language pathology for State of Oklahoma school certification.
