Doctor of Audiology

The Program
The University of Florida's Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) was one of the
first to be offered in the nation. Since 1998, this innovative program has
combined classroom learning, cutting edge research and a wide range of
clinical experiences to provide students with a truly comprehensive
academic and clinical education. The University of Florida's Audiology
program has been recognized as one of the nation's top Au.D.
programs. In 2008, U.S. News & World Report placed Florida's Doctor
of Audiology Program 6th in rankings among all U.S. graduate audiology

The Degree
The 30 Best Careers in 2009 (U.S. News and World Report, Dec.11,
2008) cited job satisfaction among the reasons audiologists were listed
in the top thirty best careers. An Au.D. from the University of Florida will
place you in a position to take advantage of career opportunities in this
field. This credential will continually provide recognition for you,
throughout your professional career, no matter where it may take you.

Our graduates are qualified to embark on a career in professional
audiology and are eligible for state licensure and for certification from the
American Board of Audiology and the American Speech-Language-
Hearing Association.

Application Requirements
Applicants are required to submit an online application with: three letters
of recommendation, a personal statement, complete post-secondary
transcripts, and an official report of the GRE. TOEFL scores are also
required for international applicants.

Applicants should hold at least an earned U.S. bachelor's degree (or its
international equivalent). Applicants holding an earned U.S. graduate
degree are also encouraged to apply (with the GRE requirement being
waived). Additional admission details are available on our website.

Program Options:

The 4-year Au.D. program is designed for
those individuals entering with an earned
bachelor's degree in any field. This 45-
month program starts in August.

The 2-year Au.D. program is designed for
students with a Master's degree in
Audiology with little or no professional work
experience. The 24-month program starts
in August.

"Employment of audiologists is expected to
grow 10 percent from 2006 to 2016, about as
fast as the average for all occupations. Hearing
loss is strongly associated with aging, so rapid
growth in older population groups will cause
the number of people with hearing and balance
impairments to increase markedly. Medical
advances also are improving the survival rate
of premature infants and trauma victims, who
then need assessment and sometimes
treatment. Greater awareness of the
importance of early identification and diagnosis
of hearing disorders in infants also will increase
employment...Job prospects will be favorable
for those possessing the Au.D. degree."

The Students
The University of Florida is highly selective in admitting
students to its On-Campus Au.D. program. While 75
students apply to the program annually, we only enroll
about fifteen students per academic year.

The Graduate School has not established a minimum
standard for the combined GRE score for applicants.
Applicants average approximately 1080, and those
accepted to the program average 1140. An applicant's
GRE score, however, is only one measure used in the
context of a holistic credential review process by the
admissions committee. All applications are reviewed by
each member of the admissions committee, and all are
considered for admission.

The Faculty
Our nationally recognized faculty reflect forward thinking
approaches to graduate education and provide students
with exposure to academic, clinical, and research
coursework that is innovative and on the cutting edge of
the profession. Areas of specialty include but are not
limited to: auditory physiology, noise induced hearing loss,
vestibular disorders, auditory processing disorders,
cochlear implants, audiologic rehabilitation, central
mechanisms of hearing, and psychoacoustics.

Awards and Presentations
Students and faculty in the On-Campus Au.D. program
regularly present research projects at national meetings of
the American Academy of Audiology, American Board of
Audiology and the Association for Research in
Otolaryngology. Audiology graduate students have been
awarded the American Academy of Audiology Student
Research Award. Each year the American Academy of
Audiology awards only five of these highly competitive
Student Research awards to graduate students. Students
have also received the Leo Doerfler Memorial Scholarship.
from the Audiology Foundation of America as well as the
Audiology Foundation of America's (AFA) Outstanding-
Student Scholarships. To receive these scholarships,
students must be nominated by their program directors
and are selected based on academic achievement and
professional potential.
