Communication Sciences and Oral Health

The Department of Communication Sciences and Oral Health is made up of two main program areas: Communication Sciences, with Speech-Language Pathology and Education of the Deaf programs, and Dental Hygiene.

Communication Sciences

Education of the Deaf

Texas Woman's has trained teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing for more than 50 years and ensures our graduates have field-based experiences that aid you in becoming a more successful educator. Learn from experienced and supportive faculty, train in the future classroom laboratory and join an active student organization.

Speech-Language Pathology (SLP)

SLPs work with patients with communication, hearing and swallowing disorders. Texas Woman's provides everything you need for a successful career. Learn from experienced and supportive faculty who are ASHA-certified and Texas-licensed speech-language pathologists and audiologists as you train in our onsite clinics and join an active student organization.

The campus itself is beautiful, but it’s the people who make the difference. TWU has such a welcoming and kind community that makes it easy to call home.

Dental Hygiene

A dental hygiene degree from Texas Woman’s opens up career opportunities to you beyond the dentist office. Our programs teach you critical thinking and evidence-based decision making with a global context you won’t find at other universities. TWU dental hygiene students train in our on-campus Dental Hygiene Clinic to receive hands-on experience with patients.
