Graduate Program


kaipa ramesh 300Welcome to the graduate program website of Communication Sciences and Disorders. In recent years, we have recruited a diverse and talented group of students not only in the state of Oklahoma but also from different parts of the USA (Alaska, California, Colorado, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin to name a few). The latest rankings released by the U.S. News & World Report in 2016 places our program in the top 50% of the graduate programs in Speech-Language Pathology. All our graduate students receive clinical training that is well grounded in evidence-based practice. Our graduate students’ completion, employment, and Praxis exam pass rates have averaged more than 95% in the past four years. In addition to the generous Tuition Waivers and Assistantships that some of our students receive during their first year, we also offer multiple scholarships every year. Of late, we have had a steady increase in the number of students wanting to pursue a thesis option. We have also recruited new faculty whose research covers different clinical and basic areas of speech, language, and hearing sciences. The low student-faculty ratio in classrooms and an exemplary clinical training helps groom our graduate students to be excellent clinicians and researchers. There has never been a more exciting time to be a part of our graduate program. We welcome and encourage students from diverse backgrounds to apply to our graduate program. Please take a moment to browse through the graduate program webpage to know more about our graduate degree.
