Audiology (Au.D.)

The  Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) program, offered by the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, is designed to prepare audiology professionals to meet requirements for licensure (and certification, if desired) and is consistent with the standards of the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

The program is specifically designed for individuals who have completed an undergraduate degree program in an accredited college or university and who have met the prerequisite requirements for admission to the Au.D. program. This is a four-year (eleven semester) full-time academic and clinical program. Most applicants who have completed an undergraduate degree in communication disorders meet our course work requirements for admission. Applicants with undergraduate degrees in other fields may need to complete prerequisite course requirements prior to admission to the graduate program.

Admission to this program is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School. Applications must be made using the university's online application and the CSDCAS Centralized Application Service. Deadline for receipt of all application materials for fall admission is January 15. 

Prerequisite courses for admission to the Au.D. program include coursework in behavioral and social sciences, mathematics, natural science, human communication, language acquisition, phonetics or acoustics, and an introductory course in human communication disorders. Most applicants will have also completed introductory coursework in speech-language pathology and audiology.

The Au.D. requires successful completion of 121-125 graduate credits in the major plus written and/or oral comprehensive examinations.
