Did you know that more than 30 million Americans have a hearing problem? People who have hearing difficulties often don't even know there's an issue. You can become an audiology professional helping deaf and hard of hearing individuals navigate their options and improve their quality of life. We offer a Doctor of Audiology (AuD) degree that focuses on preparing students to become successful audiologists.
Why This Program & What You'll Learn
If you're fascinated by the science of hearing and want to make a difference in people's lives, consider this top-ranked program at CMU. Audiology plays an essential role in the quality of life for the deaf and hard of hearing. That's especially true for children and teenagers who seldom complain about the symptoms of hearing loss, while adults may lose their hearing so gradually they don't realize it is happening. Audiologists are the allied health professionals who provide the diagnosis and treatment of hearing and balance disorders across the lifespan.
