AuD Curriculum

During the first three years, coursework is integrated with clinical and research training, with students completing and presenting a Capstone Project in the third year of study. The fourth year is fully dedicated to clinical training. A variety of formative and summative assessments are required during the four-year program to ensure each student’s acquisition of knowledge and mastery of skills. The curriculum covers the scope of practice and includes coursework in the basic and applied sciences, as well as prevention, identification, evaluation and treatment of auditory and vestibular disorders.
