TWU Speech Language Pathology Master's Degree Program

Speech Language Pathology (SLP) Services

Texas Woman's University (TWU) TETN SLP Master's Degree Program

To address the shortage of master's level SLPs in Texas schools, a partnership was formed with Texas Education Service Centers, Texas Woman's University, Texas Education Agency, and local educational entities to provide a master's degree program for both in-field and out-of-field students.  The program, fully accredited by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), utilizes videoconferencing, web-based instruction, and clinical experiences on school campuses, hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, rehabilitation centers and special summer camps.  Successful program completion prepares graduates to apply for Texas licensure in speech pathology and ASHA certification.
Candidates who do not wish to work in Texas schools are not eligible for admission to this program.  

Cycle 10 

The Cycle 10 graduate program began in May 2019 and runs through 2021.  If another cycle is authorized, mandatory information meetings will be held and applications accepted in 2020 with the program starting in summer 2021. More information will be posted on TWU's site and here when available.


Individuals who do not have a bachelor’s degree in the speech or communication field are required to take “leveling” course work, either through TWU or through an ASHA-approved university.  TWU offers a Bilingual certification in addition to the SLP master’s degree.  The purpose is to better serve children receiving speech therapy services in a language other than English.



  • Leveling Courses Summer – October 1 (even years only)
  • Completing leveling course work does not guarantee admission into the master’s degree program
  • Universities that offer leveling courses online can be found at
