Doctor of Audiology Program

October 2018: Important Update

The Clinical Doctorate in Audiology program at WVU will not be accepting applications for Fall 2019 admission. As a result, we will not hold an open house for the audiology program since we are not accepting applications.

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at WVU strives for excellence in all aspects of our clinical training and maintains a student-centered learning environment. Students who graduate from our programs are well-prepared to work in the field. Putting admissions on hold for a year will allow the faculty the time needed to assess the program and consider a redesign of the academic and clinic curriculum.

The purpose of the Au.D. program is to provide students with the academic and clinical preparation to diagnose and treat the full range of hearing and vestibular disorders across the lifespan. Our goal is to prepare audiologists who are qualified to work effectively in a wide variety of clinical settings, including hospitals, clinics, special treatment centers, schools, industry, and private practice. Graduates of the program must demonstrate acquisition of all knowledge and skills listed in the Standards for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-A).
