Speech and Hearing Sciences

Graduate Study

Students completing the B.A. or B.S. degree in speech and hearing sciences may wish to continue their studies at the graduate level in a program leading to the master's degree in speech-language pathology (M.A.) or the clinical doctoral degree in audiology (Au.D.). It is recommended that students seeking preparation for an M.A. in speech-language pathology include in their curriculum S111, S201, S302, S333, S375, S425, S427, and S478. It is also recommended that students seeking preparation for the Au.D. select their curriculum to include these courses: S302, S375, S429, S478, and either S425 or S427. Selection of these courses will minimize the time required to earn an M.A. or Au.D. degree at Indiana University and in other similarly structured graduate programs. In addition, it is recommended that students take at least one course outside of the department in the following areas: biology, linguistics, physical sciences, psychology, and statistics.
