The School of Audiology offers an accelerated three-year professional curriculum leading to a doctor of audiology (AuD) degree.

The mission of the School of Audiology is to prepare doctors of audiology in an innovative educational environment who are clinically outstanding, committed to life-long learning, and leaders in their community and profession.

Aiming for Excellence

The primary goal of the School of Audiology is to graduate outstanding audiologists, ready to assume autonomous professional responsibilities in a variety of practice settings, including private practices, medical centers and clinics, and other diverse settings.

To achieve this goal, the faculty members in the audiology school strive to offer a curriculum that prepares students across the audiology scope of practice through a combination of rigorous, didactic courses and critical clinical experiences that work together to integrate comprehensive knowledge and skills. The curriculum is further enhanced with a rich framework of collegial interprofessional collaboration, evidence driven practice, highly professional and ethical behavior, and a team-based learning environment that supports critical thinking and professional communication.

As a school, we are committed to fostering among our students a spirit of life-long professional learning, a commitment to service, and a desire to contribute to the advancement of the profession. 

Strategic Plan

The School of Audiology faculty and staff regularly update the strategic plan to guide the school's growth. View the Executive Summary of the Strategic Plan. For more information, please contact the Director, Dr. Wendy D. Hanks at
