Applicants for this specialty track are expected to self-identify their interest in this specialty to the Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) at the time of application and in their personal statement submitted as part of the application process for admission into the graduate program. Preference will be given to applicants who have had an undergraduate background in speech-language pathology and have demonstrated an ability to manage course work and clinical assignments exceeding the standard MS-SLP curriculum and typical academic schedule. Most of the required courses for this track are part of the standard curriculum; however, trainees will take two (2) additional independent studies courses and enroll in four (4) workshops/seminars targeting specific instrumental and non-instrumental assessment skills for individuals specializing in voice, resonance, respiration, and dysphagia evaluation and management. Decisions regarding admission into the voice specialty track will be made at the time of admission into the graduate program. Students will be notified in their letters of acceptance from the graduate school whether they have been accepted, wait-listed, or denied acceptance into the voice specialty track.
