An undergraduate course in statistics or experimental design is required to complete the Au.D. if not taken as an undergraduate. This may also be taken as a graduate student elective.
A background in Sign Language is strongly encouraged. There is not a specific course required, but basic sign language skills are beneficial to you as a communication professional.
Successful completion of the Pre-Professional Program does NOT ensure the student a seat in the Doctor of Audiology Program. Students must apply by February 1st of the year he/she would like to enter the Doctor of Audiology Program.
