We've created a guide to help you plan your masters. If you have any questions please contact our advisors or director.
- All listed courses are required.
- Register for thesis credit (CSD 6970) in the semester in which the thesis is defended and one additional semester; register for a total of 6 credits over the masters program.
- Students may be allowed to substitute 6 credits of course work for the 6 thesis credits. The specific courses being substituted MUST be chosen in consultation with the student’s thesis committee.
- Work on thesis is encouraged prior to registration for credit.
- Students must be registered for at least 3 thesis credits in the semester in which the thesis is defended (including summer.)
- University of Utah Health's Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic is a full-time community clinic as well as a clinical training site. The clinic operates from the first to last day of each semester, including finals week. Note: The clinic is not closed during fall and spring breaks, and student clinicians are expected to see their clients during those times.
- Clients are scheduled between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm on Mondays through Fridays.
- Specific times will be determined by the clinic director, according to client needs.
- Unavailability to meet with clients at necessary times may prolong a student’s program including delaying externship assignments and graduation.
- Two externships are required (more may be completed if desired).
- All students are required to complete one of their externships in a public or private school setting.
- The second externship may be completed in a setting of student’s choice based on clinical areas of interest and clinical training needs. Most students complete their second externship in an inpatient or outpatient medical facility.
- Minimum requirements for each of the two required externships are:
- Ten weeks in duration
- At least 4 full days per week on site.
- Specific externship sites may have additional time requirements.
- Externships are completed during the second spring semester (fifth and final semester) of the graduate program.
- Prior to beginning externships, students must complete a minimum of 150 clock hours in the department clinics and receive approval of Clinic Director.
