Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Interprofessional Health and Human Services

This minor is a set of courses designed to enhance students’ knowledge of sound, hearing, and audiology in preparation for application to a Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) graduate program.  The anticipated audience is Communication Sciences and Disorders students interested in specializing in audiology, but this minor may have appeal for students in other majors, such as psychology, biology, nursing, or business.  The minor acquaints students with principles in acoustics and psychoacoustics, the anatomy and physiology of the ear and of hearing, aural rehabilitation, and the professional practice of audiology.  The Pre-Audiology minor requires an overall grade point average and grade point average in the minor course sequence, including electives, equal to or above 3.0.

Elective Courses


The six credit elective sequence allows students to explore areas related to audiology, and to design a sub set of courses tailored to their career goals.  That is, a student interested in diagnostics and rehab might choose courses in psychology and sociology, while someone interested in private practice might target business courses.  Others may choose a combination of courses. The courses listed below are recommended for fulfillment of the elective sequence, but students may, with sufficient rationale, use others. Acceptance of courses not listed below is at the discretion of the program director.
