Speech Language Pathology Bachelor's Degree Overview
Speech language pathology teaches students how to evaluate speech and language disorders and to provide needed therapeutic services to people of all ages. They work individually or as a team to make a difference in the lives of people with speech and/or language disorders.
UT's speech language pathology program uses classroom and therapy experiences to educate students. Students prepare for school, medical or research employment or take a multidisciplinary option that combines the three. They gain therapy practice early in our on-campus clinic. During the fourth year, students gain real-world experience and earn academic credit through internships with local speech language pathologists or other health-care professionals. Students can join the UT chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association or other professional organizations on campus.
