The clinical graduate programs in speech-language pathology and audiology at Syracuse University are nationally ranked, accredited programs with a long history of excellence. While pursuing a speech-language pathology or audiology degree, students have the opportunity to work with researchers in state-of-the-art laboratories and to learn from master clinicians in the areas of speech, language, and hearing. In addition, the location of the University provides students opportunities to gain clinical experience in diagnosis and treatment with a wide variety of clinical populations.

AuD/PhD Dual Degree

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders offers an AuD/PhD degree for those students interested in receiving both a professional doctoral degree (AuD) and a research doctoral degree (PhD). The professional doctoral program is designed to meet the current requirements for the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence. The research doctoral degree (PhD) is designed for students interested in a traditional PhD program that focuses on research and prepares students for careers in teaching and research. Application to the dual program (AuD/PhD) may be made after successful completion of the first year of the AuD program. Students who are interested in the AuD/PhD should contact a faculty member in their area of research interest. Sponsorship of the student by a faculty member must be agreed upon prior to the time of enrollment in the dual program. The AuD/PhD is a 110 credit program, which allows students to pursue both their clinical training and their research training in a rigorous, intensive and streamlined program. Students must pass a pre-qualifying exam at the end of their first year in the AuD/PhD program and qualifying exams at the end of their coursework. The academic and research experiences lead to the dissertation, which typically is begun in the fourth year of study. It is anticipated that a student can complete the dual degree program in 6 years of full-time study.
