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.
Emphases in the PhD program are speech-language pathology, audiology, speech science, language science, or hearing science. The program prepares students for careers in research, teaching, and advanced clinical applications. Most students entering the program have a master's degree in speech-language pathology, audiology, or a related area. The PhD degree usually requires three or more years of work beyond the master's degree. In general, a student's program is designed by the student in consultation with the advisor to satisfy the particular objectives of the student and program requirements.
