Audiology Capstone Projects
Each candidate for the degree Doctor of Audiology (AuD) must submit an approved document that describes the project completed in the fourth year of the program. The Capstone Project must demonstrate the student's mastery in an individually-defined area of interest. The nature of each project may vary with the interests and plans of the individual student. The Capstone Project is expected to be a scholarly contribution to knowledge in a chosen area of specialization. Students may choose either a Research Track, for which they must conduct a clinical or laboratory research project; or a Specialization Track, for which they enroll in a minimum of 12 credit hours of course work outside the department in a specific topic area. The specialization must culminate in a scholarly and original paper on the specialization topic and its importance to the profession of audiology.
