MS vs. MA


Recommended Posts

I am currently pursuing a BS degree in speech and hearing. Would that then mean I am limited in applying to graduate schools that offer only a MS degrees (to match my BS degree) or does it not matter? Also, is there a difference between a Master's degree in speech pathology, communication sciences and disorders, and speech and hearing sciences? Will either degree fulfill the degree requirement needed to become a speech pathologist?

Either a BA or BS undergraduate degree is fine and you can apply to either MS or MS options. Some schools offer both! Speech pathology, communication sciences and disorders, and speech and hearing sciences are all fine for becoming a speech pathologist and a MA or MS is fine as well. If you want a Ph.D. a MS may be preferred but isn't required.
