Doctor of Audiology Program
All Audiology students complete a clinical research component including coursework in research methods and statistics as well as a research project. The research project should give evidence of mature scholarship. It may contribute useful information or organize existing information of interest to the profession. It should demonstrate a firm grasp of the problems in a particular area of study and show an ability to communicate ideas in writing. Research topics can be basic science or clinical. Students are expected to participate in a project with the advice and approval of their academic advisor and research mentor. The research and writing are the responsibility of the student, who should look to their research mentor for guidance and additional writing help if needed.
Students must take Research Methods (SPHSC 504) and one course in Statistics at the 400 level and above (EdPsy 490 or equivalent). Twelve Captstone Project (SPHSC 801) credits are required.
