Speech Language & Hearing Sciences
The Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at The University of Arizona offers graduate education regarding the science of human communication and disorders, training for clinical careers in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, and preparation for research careers in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences.
Our faculty members are active researchers, dynamic classroom instructors, and leaders in the profession. Students learn foundational knowledge, cutting-edge research findings, and evidence-based practice in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology.
- The Au.D. program of study is designed to prepare students to meet the knowledge and skill areas required by the Audiology profession and its certifying organizations.
- The Au.D. requires a minimum of 50 credit hours of graduate-level course work in the areas of hearing science, audiology and communication disorders. Supplementary coursework may be needed to fulfill the knowledge and skill requirements needed for professional certification.
- A mandatory Auditory Doctoral Project project requires a minimum of 9 credit hours of enrollment. In addition, completion of academic coursework to fulfill a minor (minimum 9 units) is required. A minimum of 12 units is required to complete the audiology clinical externship.
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
