Get an Edge with NSU's Doctor of Audiology Program

While all accredited doctoral audiology programs prepare you to practice as a licensed Audiologist, a select few push you further. Stretch your skills past the norm. And help you graduate with a deeper perspective than the average practitioner. The NSU Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) is one of those programs.

Top-Tier Audiology Curriculum: Goes Further Than Most Programs

A mother's soothing voice, a grandchild's giggle, the opening riff of your favorite song. Audiologists connect people to a world of sound they lost along the way — or never heard at all. As an audiologist, your expertise helps students perform better in school; safeguards soldiers against lifelong hearing damage; and assists infants to the elderly in improving vestibular issues to identify and prevent serious injuries.

Lower Stress. High Demand Profession

Audiology is not only personally gratifying — it’s also considered one of the least stressful work/life career choices in health care. With 16% forecasted growth through 2028, according to the latest federal labor law experts, you also enjoy financial stability and continued professional demand.

Amplify Your Audiology Expertise

Build advanced clinical expertise in amplification, business skills, auditory processing, geriatric and pediatric audiology, pharmacology and also benefit from a much stronger focus on vestibular training than typical programs.
