The University of Pittsburgh AuD program is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA). Our academic and clinical curriculum exceeds the standards established by CAA and easily prepares students for licensure in audiology. To become a licensed audiologist in most states, applicants must have an earned doctor of Audiology (AuD) degree. Students graduating from the University of Pittsburgh are competent across the scope of practice and are prepared for evidence-based practice at the highest level.

Students entering the AuD program with an undergraduate degree in communication science and disorders will need to complete four years of graduate study, including a one-year externship to meet all requirements for the degree and state licensure. Students also will meet clinical practicum requirements for the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) and/or American Board Certification in Audiology (ABA).
