The department offers the Doctor of Audiology (AuD) degree. This is a 95-hour post-baccalaureate four-year degree and includes:

  • 55 semester hours of academic courses, plus
  • 40 semester hours of clinic courses and a clinic externship in the fourth year (ASLP 6010 through ASLP 6090).

In most circumstances, all academic course work is to be completed in three years. Students in their fourth year of the program will complete a clinical externship. Prior to beginning the clinical externship, all students are required to complete a directed research project or its equivalent and pass formative and summative examinations.

In conjunction with the Department of Rehabilitation and Health Services, the department offers a concentration in audiology and speech-language pathology under the Health Services Research, PhD .
