The Communication Disorders Program at Texas State University is very fortunate to be located in a growing, diverse demographic location. Not only do our students have the opportunity to work with people who have unique and varied clinical disorders, but they are also able to interact with a very diverse population. This diversity is also reflected in our student body composition.
