The Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) transitional degree program is a distance education program for practicing audiologists. To be eligible, individuals must possess a master's or doctoral degree in audiology and have a minimum of four years of clinical experience. The program is designed for audiology practitioners who want to enhance their skills, knowledge, and academic status while continuing to practice full-time.
The transitional degree program is customized to each individual practitioner's needs, based on evaluation of current demonstrated competencies. The broadly experienced, self-motivated audiologist will receive advanced standing in appropriate areas and follow an individualized course of study including required courses in areas of deficiencies and chosen electives. There are no residency requirements for program completion; however, attendance at graduation is required. The distance education program integrates web based instruction, video demonstrations, directed readings, clinical projects, and email and chat room interactions among students and faculty. Homework assignments and examinations will be competed online.
