Doctor of Audiology
The Doctor of Audiology (AuD) program is a four-year, post-baccalaureate course of study designed to prepare students as clinical audiologists. The program at the University of Northern Colorado emphasizes a clinician-scholar model and is designed to prepare students as independent clinicians, utilizing evidence based-practice along with the latest advances in evaluation and treatment of hearing and balance disorders. The curriculum is based upon a foundation of didactic courses including science and research methods in addition to clinically based classes which allow students to grow as clinicians by providing hands-on experiences. A unique aspect of our program is the opportunity to do some student teaching. We feel this additional opportunity broadens career choices for our students.

EXCITING NEWS for Potential Au.D. Applicants:
We are in the process of requesting some proposed changes to our current AuD program that will enhance our ability to teach clinical skills and potentially shorten the timeline towards degree completion while maintaining the depth and breadth of the content needed for clinical practice. This change will be beneficial for students both in terms of time and expense.
This Draft Curriculum is shared with the understanding that revisions are still underway and pending approval. We are striving for approval by May 2024.
Please attend an open house or contact Dr. Meinke if you have any questions.
