Program Details

Program Description

Audiologists provide services to individuals with hearing disorders. Our Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) program provides a firm understanding of the normal processes of hearing and communication and fosters development of strong clinical skills and decision-making so that our graduates are prepared to diagnose and treat the full range of hearing disorders in all age groups.

Students will complete some of their clinical work in the West Virginia University Hearing Center, which is located in Allen Hall, while some clinical experiences will be at various outside sites. During their fourth and final year in the program, students will complete a residency.

The demand for certified professionals is increasing and job prospects remain very good. Audiologists are employed in hospitals, community clinics, physicians’ offices, private practices, rehabilitation centers, schools, industry, and many other settings.
