Studying audiology at the University of Pittsburgh puts you ahead of the game.
The professional Doctor of Audiology (AuD) will be the required entry-level degree for audiologists by 2012, and it is strongly recommended for all entering the profession at this time.
Our AuD curriculum exceeds the academic and clinical standards established by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the American Academy of Audiology for this professional degree.
This AuD program prepares entry-level audiologists for private practice, leadership roles in the profession, and clinical faculty positions in academic centers.
Entry-level students (with a baccalaureate degree in communication science and disorders) will complete four years of study (11 trimesters [corresponding to 8 semesters and 3 full summer sessions], 93 course credits plus credits in clinical practica), including one-year externship, meeting all requirements for degree and state licensure—as well as all clinical practicum requirements for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC).
