Dual degree: Au.D./Ph.D.
To prepare students for competitive opportunities in academia, the Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences Program offers a curriculum of study leading to dual Au.D. and Ph.D. degrees. The department is committed to educating and training highly motivated individuals to become successful, independent clinical investigators and future leaders in academia. Academic courses encourage a theoretical perspective and experimental orientation to develop an appreciation of current knowledge and future research needs. This program allows qualified students to earn the Au.D. and Ph.D. degree more quickly than pursuing both degrees independently.
