Audiology is an allied health profession that is concerned with 1) the science of the hearing and balance mechanisms and 2) the clinical identification, diagnosis, and treatment of individuals with hearing and balance disorders. A professional doctoral degree (the AuD) is required for new practitioners applying for a license in the state of California. The AuD program emphasizes clinical proficiency that is informed by scholarly research and evidence-based practice. Our program is a four-year course of study that includes academic courses, clinical rotations, and a doctoral research project. We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our AuD program.
