The Doctor of Audiology (AuD) program is a four-year course of study that integrates course work with clinical experiences and research opportunities during the first three years of study and that includes a full-time clinical externship during the fourth year. The curriculum covers the scope of practice and includes course work in the basic and applied sciences as well as in the prevention, identification, evaluation and treatment of auditory and vestibular disorders. During the first year of study, students complete foundational course work and begin observation and practicum. During years two and three, the time in practicum increases and the time in courses decreases. During the fourth year, students are fully immersed in clinical experiences.
