The Department of Speech Language and Hearing Science offers students the opportunity to pursue an integrated program of study leading to dual doctorate degrees in the field of Audiology and Hearing Science. The Ph.D./Au.D. dual degree program train students in the clinical research and clinical practice in audiology. Students in the program gain training that will prepare them to become independent scholars, to teach in higher-education, to conduct research, to become certified clinical audiologists, and to gain skills in leadership. The dual degree program allows students to pursue both their clinical training and their research training in a rigorous, intensive and streamlined program.
Students may apply to both programs simultaneously, or may apply to the Ph.D. portion after having been accepted into the Au.D. portion or may apply to the Au.D. portion after having been accepted into the Ph.D. portion.
