Doctor of Audiology

The Doctor of Audiology (AuD) program is a four-year course of study that prepares students as independent clinical audiologists. Established in 1947, the program is among the oldest and most prestigious of its kind.

Today, its curriculum serves as a national model, immersing students in academic coursework, clinical experiences and research opportunities. Ranked among the top three in the country by U.S. News & World Report, the program and its faculty are internationally recognized and the program attracts a diverse body of students.

Accreditation and certification

The AuD program is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), 2200 Research Blvd. #310, Rockville, MD 20850, (800) 498-2071 or (301) 296-5700.

The AuD program is designed to prepare students for the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) in Audiology of ASHA and licensure to practice audiology in the State of Missouri. Our graduates have a long history of being strongly recruited and employed in positions around the country and every effort to ensure eligibility in all other states, but individuals interested in licensure outside of Missouri are encouraged to review those requirements before beginning an academic program. If you plan to pursue licensure in a state other than Missouri, information can be found at
