Welcome to the Department of Social Work and Communication Disorders

The Department of Social Work and Communication Disorders offers multiple degree options in the fields of Social Work, Speech-Language Pathology, and Audiology.

Our social work program offers a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work (BSW), priming students to become generalist practitioners, and a Master’s degree in Social Work (MSW), preparing advanced practitioners and community agency leaders to become licensed social workers.

In our social work programs, we prepare effective generalist social work practitioners committed to strengthening marginalized and oppressed populations. We respond to the diverse needs of multicultural communities, emphasizing service to the Hispanic, military, and rural populations in North and Central Texas.

We adhere to the profession’s core values of services, dignity and worth of the person; social justice; integrity, competence, and recognizing the importance of human relationships.

Our Communication Disorders program prepares you to enter into various professions in both Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology with a B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders. The coursework addresses both the clinical and medical side of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, developing an understanding of communication disorders and the techniques and tools available to evaluate and treat our clients, from birth to older adults, who need our help.

Whatever program you choose, our classrooms expand into the community as our faculty engage students in research and community-based projects, providing real-life experience and know-how in conjunction with an excellent curriculum.

A career in the fields of Social Work, Speech-Language Pathology, and Audiology offer many options. Contact us with any questions you might have!
