Along with the program-specific requirements listed below, please read the General Information section of this website for requirements that apply to all major fields. Individuals interested in pursuing an advanced degree in audiology should apply directly to the audiology AuD program. Students admitted to the AuD are eligible to apply for the MA with an audiology track. The emphases in the AuD program focus on meeting the standards for licensure as an audiologist. The program emphasizes outcome-based learning activities that prepare graduates to interpret research findings and incorporate them into clinical practice. Coursework and clinical education focus on diagnostic, rehabilitative techniques, technology counseling approaches, and human development. Note that all offers of admission for the AuD program are contingent upon the results of a criminal background check administered by the Minnesota Department of Human Services which will be conducted during the upcoming fall semester. The doctoral (AuD) education program in audiology at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA)of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.
