Au.D. in Audiology

The Au.D. program is designed to produce audiologists who are able to function independently in all diagnostic and rehabilitative settings, serving individuals of all ages, including those who are deaf or hard of hearing. The program offers an intensive, broadly based academic curriculum together with integrated sequential clinical experience. The curriculum was developed in accordance with the recommendations and guidelines of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), the American Academy of Audiology (AAA), and the Academy of Rehabilitative Audiology (ARA).

The Clinical Doctoral Degree (AuD) education program in Audiology at Gallaudet University is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.

Pediatric-Educational Audiology Emphasis

Students accepted into the Au.D. program have the option of selecting a pediatric-educational audiology emphasis (PEAE). The curriculum for students who select this emphasis includes: substituting two required courses for the two program electives, adapting assignments in 12 required courses to pediatric populations, and adapting required practica, internship, and residency experiences to serve pediatric populations. The PEAE option comprehensively addresses the competencies of the Educational Audiology Association as well as the knowledge and skills acquisition (KASA) competencies required for ASHA's Certification of Clinical Competence in Audiology.
