Long Island Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) Consortium

Offered by Adelphi University, Hofstra University and St. John's University

The Doctor of Audiology program is a four-year full-time course of academic and clinical training, in which students complete a minimum of 89 semester hours of post-baccalaureate study. The Au.D. curriculum includes course work and clinical practicum experiences in all aspects of audiologic practice. In addition, a clinical research project proposal is required of each student.

Students attend classes on each campus but at least one-third of the credits needed to earn the Au.D. must be taken at the home university. The home institution is responsible for maintaining student transcripts, providing advisement, and for monitoring ASHA certification and New York State licensing requirements. The home institution will award the degree, noting that it was completed in conjunction with the two other universities in the consortium. Students may request a home institution, but the Audiology Faculty Council reserves the right to assign students to another campus to balance enrollment among the participating universities, as needed.

Note: Tuition and fees for the Au.D. program are set at the highest prevailing rate among the member institutions regardless of the home institution.

Mission Statement
The mission of the Au.D. Consortium is to prepare students to be professional, knowledgeable, competent, and compassionate clinicians who are able to utilize evidence-based practice by integrating research principles and findings into their professional practice. Students will gain a strong appreciation for the connections between the scientific bases of the discipline and its clinical practices. It is our goal to produce highly skilled practitioners with the ability to perform the wide variety of diagnostic, remedial, and other critical services within the scope of practice for audiologists, while maintaining sensitivity to cultural and linguistic diversity. Adelphi's department of communication sciences and disorders, in cooperation with Hofstra and St. John’s Universities, offers a professional doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.). The primary objective of the program is to produce highly skilled practitioners who are competent to perform the wide variety of diagnostic, remedial, and other critical services within the scope of practice for audiologists.

Consistent with the missions of the three universities as institutions of higher education preparing professionals to be ethical, competent clinicians in a diverse community, the institutions and program abide by all applicable federal, state and local laws which prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, age, sex (including sexual harassment), sexual orientation, marital status or disability in admitting students or in administering educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships, loans, and other institutionally administered programs or activities.
