The mission of the Au.D. degree curriculum is to educate students in the science and practice of audiology. Academic courses and clinical education experiences encourage a theoretical perspective and experimental orientation to develop an appreciation of current knowledge and future research needs. The Doctor of Audiology degree is a four-year full-time post-baccalaureate program that includes three years of course work and clinical experiences plus a one-year-full-time residency.
The program in audiology allows students to meet all academic and clinical practicum requirements for the ASHA’s Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) and the State of Connecticut’s requirements for licensure in audiology. It is expected that students will earn a minimum of 2000 hours during enrollment in the graduate program.
