The Advising Center wants to help you make informed decisions as you progress toward graduation. Students in the Master of Arts degree in NT, OT, or ST ask the following questions:

1. Where can I take courses to complete the Master of Arts (in NT, OT, or TS) degree?

The degree has no residential requirement; however, Advanced Standing (AS) and elective courses are offered on the Dallas Campus only. Therefore, students will need to relocate to Dallas to complete this degree.

2. What else must I know?
