The primary goal of the Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree program at ETSU is to provide clinical instruction and coursework that will prepare students to practice audiology with varied and diverse populations and individuals. To that end, the program will prepare students for roles as audiologists and clinic directors by providing advanced practical experiences in a variety of settings and by directing students to appropriate clinical training sites. The program is intended to prepare students as audiologists able to uphold the ASHA Code of Ethics and provide the standard of care in a variety of diagnostic and rehabilitative areas. Although the Au.D. is a clinical doctorate, it will provide students with the analytical and substantive knowledge they will need to assess and improve the effectiveness of practice, and the utilization of research. Two tracks are available for admission into and matriculation through the Au.D. program. Students who apply to the program while holding the bachelor’s degree take the Traditional Entry track. Students who apply to the program while holding a master’s degree in Audiology may take the Advanced Standing track.
