With TCU’s commencement ceremony just behind us, we will be featuring current TCU seniors to show their plans for after graduation. With the wealth of professional opportunities available to students in Dallas-Fort Worth, across the United States, and around the world, TCU graduates are truly doing amazing things!
Nolan Johnson is a graduate from the class of 2015 with a major in Habilitation of the Deaf from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Upon graduation, Nolan will be obtaining his Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology at Fontbonne University in St. Louis, Missouri. His goal is to become a Speech-Language Pathologist for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing. When asked why this field interested him, Nolan said:
“Communication is such a big part of everyday life and I’m excited that as a future Speech-Language Pathologist, I will be helping hearing impaired individuals better communicate. I am looking forward to attending Fontbonne and I know that the education I received at TCU has prepared me to succeed at the graduate level.”
Habilitation of the Deaf is one of two majors – the other being Speech-Language Pathology – housed within the Davies School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at TCU. The Davies School is a fantastic example of TCU providing students significant hands-on learning opportunities, as all students in the school are allowed to work with clients in the on-campus clinic. Being such a rare feature at the undergraduate level, this allows students like Nolan to be extremely well-prepared for life after college.
