If you are interested in applying to the Master of Arts (M.A.) program in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at SDSU, you must complete the necessary prerequisites prior to the beginning of the Fall semester. Please use the form below as a guide to determine if you have met the various requirements we typically expect of those entering our graduate program:
- Prerequisite Coursework Checklist for Individuals With Other Backgrounds (pdf, updated 5/11/2021)
Our program requires that admitted students pass a background check prior to beginning the program. Background screenings may include checking state and federal criminal records and sex offender registries. If your background screening shows that you have a criminal record or are listed as a sex offender, you may not be able to secure clinical placements. This background check would be conducted after students accept an offer of admission and before they begin the program. The state of California may deny licensure for individuals who have been found guilty of committing acts which are contrary to public health and safety.
