We receive approximately 400 MA applications each admissions cycle, but have space for 35-40 students. Thus, the admissions process is very competitive.
Students must have completed an undergraduate degree in Speech, Language, & Hearing Sciences or Communication Sciences/Disorders OR plan to have completed our prerequisites at another institution by Fall 2018 in order to apply to our 2-year program. We will accept a Speech-Language post-baccalaureate degree from any accredited university. No students are admitted into post-baccalaureate status.
- Potential applicants with undergraduate degrees in other disciplines, see the MA Program for students With Other Backgrounds (WOB) page.
Grade Point Average
The MA program has a minimum GPA requirement of 3.2, though the average for admitted students is generally higher – around 3.8.
Additional Factors and Requirements
- Note that we do consider other factors in addition to standardized test scores and GPA in reviewing applicants for admission. Please refer to our specific application guidelines on the MA Application page.
- Applicants for admission to any SDSU MA program must also meet the general requirements for classified graduate standing to San Diego State University, as outlined in the current SDSU Graduate Bulletin.
