About this course
Audiology is the science of hearing and the study of auditory vestibular processes. The audiologist is concerned with the development, anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the auditory and vestibular systems, as well as the evaluation, habilitation/rehabilitation, and psychology of hearing and/or balance impairment. In addition, audiologists provide counseling and training in the use of amplification devices and the remediation of hearing and vestibular disorders.
The profession of audiology and its scope of practice have expanded enormously in the past decade. The demand on university and/or college training programs to keep pace with the expanding scope of practice has led the transition of audiology to a doctoring profession. Current master's programs are either closing down or are in the process of converting to residential, post-baccalaureate, four-year doctoral programs. This has created a need for master's level audiologists to further their education by becoming a doctor of audiology.
