Fall 2019 Admissions Decisions
Please do not call or email the Graduate Office to check your status.
Admissions decisions are typically announced the second week of March prior to UT Austin closing for Spring Break. Decisions are announced on your MyStatus Page regarding our decision of either ‘ADMIT’ or ‘DENY’. Those students who may be placed on a 'waiting list' will have their admission decision posted on the MyStatus Page after all those admitted in early March have responded with a decision.
A total of 32 credits of academic coursework plus 20+ credits of clinical practicum over 5 semesters are required for the completion of the M.A.
Additional areas of study within the CSD Department are in the area of bilingual & multicultural speech language pathology and family-focused treatment. Study and training in a full range of evaluation and remediation techniques are integral parts of the curriculum.
The University of Texas at Austin offers an interdisciplinary Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) that consists of a minimum of 100 semester credit hours beyond the bachelor's level. The degree program focuses on academic and clinical education for those entering the profession of audiology.
Our program is built on an apprenticeship model. Each doctoral student has a mentor who acts as the students' primary advisor and instructor. The faculty member who's research aligns with your research interest is the best person to answer specific questions about what your individual program might look like. You may contact our faculty with your questions or concerns.
