Understanding the Chart: Programs & Degrees

The chart below, conveniently organized by state, lists academic programs offering audiology education. The degree column lists the type of degree/s offered as well as the specified length for each Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) program. All of the Au.D. programs are clinical entry-level professional degree programs which prepare the graduates for clinical practice and audiology licensure. Other programs can be research programs or clinical programs; therefore, the degree column displays Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) programs, Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) programs, and Doctor of Science (Sc.D.) programs with designations of "Research" or "Clinical" to indicate the type of doctoral program offered. If a program offers degrees to audiologists who already hold a master's degree in audiology, this is indicated by a designation of "post MA". Notes are also included to indicate if combination programs such as Au.D. with a Master's degree in Business Arts (MBA) or joint research and clinical degrees are offered. A few programs offer only research degrees which may be described as research degrees in areas such as speech and hearing science or in communication sciences and disorders, but the programs listed in the chart have indicated that topics for research through the programs include those related to audiology.

Although every effort was made to include complete information on all programs, some university offerings such as dual tracks (Au.D./Research Ph.D.) or other special features are relatively new and may not be fully updated on the accreditation lists or even on a program's website. Therefore it is advisable to contact programs to inquire about specific program features.

 

Accreditation Key

The program accreditation column indicates the following:

CAA

Accreditation held by The Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

» Review CAA accreditation details

CAA Candidate

Candidacy stage of accreditation by the CAA; program has not received accredited status.

ACAE

Accreditation held by the Accreditation Commission for Audiology Education (ACAE).

» Review ACAE accreditation details

N/A

No program-specific accreditation. (CAA and the ACAE do not offer accreditation for post-master's programs such as research doctoral degrees or post-masters clinical doctoral degrees.)

None

Indicated for programs that could have either CAA and/or ACAE accreditation but do not currently hold accredited status with either accrediting body.
