Our Grad Track in Speech-Language Pathology program provides an academic and clinical professional education to prepare you as a clinician working in educational and medical settings. In the Grad Track program, in lieu of undergraduate classes and/or electives, you will begin taking graduate courses the senior year of your undergraduate studies.

There are benefits to choosing the Grad Track program. You will graduate with a master’s degree in speech-language pathology a semester earlier than the traditional graduate program, and you will save money on tuition by choosing to stay at UNT!

Requirements to apply for Grad Track program require applicants to:

  1. Be in their junior year of undergrad to apply
  2. Have a minimum of 75 completed semester credit hours
  3. Have a GPA of 3.5 or higher

Combined coursework in your undergraduate and graduate programs will qualify you for national certification from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and state licensure. You also can gain valuable research experience by working with our faculty members on various projects. You will have access to laboratories for research, clinical treatment rooms, a clinic library, a student workroom and a computer lab.
