Pre-Speech Language Pathology

Take flight at UT Martin

The UT Martin Pre-Speech Pathology (SLP) Plan is designed to prepare students for application to professional school. By following the Pre-Speech Pathology Plan recommendations, students will be eligible for admission into most graduate Speech Language Pathology (SLP) programs; however, the undergraduate courses required for admission vary substantially from one institution to the next. The courses listed in the plan are intended only as a guideline and students are strongly encouraged to review the requirements for their school(s) of choice as they vary from school to school.

The Pre-Speech Pathology Plan is slightly different from the other pre-health plans because the undergraduate prerequisites for most SLP graduate programs are not as rigid as other graduate health professions programs. Moreover, some graduate programs require specific courses in speech language or communication disorders that are not offered at UT Martin. In some cases students can add those courses to their graduate studies; however, in other cases, students will need to plan to take those courses after graduating from UT Martin. Students should contact the HSPP Program Coordinator for more information.

Please note: The Pre-SLP Plan is not a major and does not fulfill the requirements for a baccalaureate degree at UT Martin. The courses listed below are recommendations and are not required for degree completion unless also listed under the student’s chosen major.
