Audiology Minor

  • A minor in audiology introduces the student to essential information regarding hearing loss, audiological testing, and clinical knowledge of the profession. In addition, information about deaf culture and basic sign language will be provided.

    This course of study will enable students to have a better understanding of the needs of persons with hearing loss and the deaf as it relates to speech and language acquisition, genetics, and use of appropriate mechanism.

    The minor is a 24–25-credit program with 18 required and 6–7 elective credits. Required credits include the core courses that are essential to understanding basic and advanced audiological concepts, basic concepts of hearing science and acoustics, implications of processing auditory information, and basic communication needs within the deaf and hard-of-hearing populations. The elective credits allow the minor candidate to select a more focused area of concentration.
