Audiologists are healthcare professionals who provide patient-centered care in the prevention, identification, diagnosis, and evidence-based treatment of hearing, balance, and other auditory disorders for people of all ages.
The Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree from the College of Health Professions at Grand Valley State University is a professional degree that is clinically focused, allowing the student greater application of knowledge to his or her career upon graduation than other research-based programs. Students will be prepared to sit for the national examination and to qualify for state licensure upon completion of the Au.D. program at Grand Valley.
The program is a lockstep three-year (nine consecutive semesters) post-baccalaureate program leading to a Doctor of Audiology degree. This is the entry level degree for the practice of audiology. Without the Au.D. degree, an individual can be neither licensed nor certified to practice.
The GVSU Audiology program does not require a specific undergraduate major. Applicants are encouraged to choose a major that is best suited for their particular interest and goals.
