Audiology Post-Baccalaureate Program

The Audiology Post-Baccalaureate program is intended for students who have earned their bachelor’s degree in an area other than communication sciences and disorders and are returning to school to complete the prerequisite requirements for a graduate program in audiology.

Required communication sciences and disorders courses

You typically take the courses in the following sequence. However, other options are available depending on your needs. You should meet with Dr. Stephanie Richards, post-baccalaureate advisor, or Dr. Shannon Palmer, Audiology Division Director, to learn more about the program and plan your schedule. Following this meeting, you will be added to a Blackboard shell where you can access the application for continuing with the second semester of courses as well as other important advising information.

*You must be approved to continue with courses in semester 2.

Courses for certification

It is also recommended that post-baccalaureate students intending to pursue a graduate degree in audiology consider taking the courses in the following areas (if you haven’t already). While the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) does not currently require these courses for certification as an audiologist, they are required for speech-language pathologists.  It is very possible, in the future, that audiologists will be required to meet ASHA standards for certification.
