Research Requirement

The Master of Arts degree in Speech-Language Pathology includes a research requirement where each student seeking a master's degree must conduct a research project or a thesis. There are three options for completing the research requirement: (1) research thesis, which is a detailed empirical project (meaning the student will gather data using subjects). The remaining two options are non-thesis projects: (2) empirical project (subjects are used, but the research is not as detailed as a thesis); (3) non-empirical (non-traditional) project (example: preparation of a clinical training video-tape).
