In the fall of 2000, the Department of Communication Disorders at Texas Tech University
Health Sciences Center was approved for the first Doctor of Audiology program in Texas
in the twenty-first century. Presently, we have approximately 35-40 students enrolled
in our doctoral program. The history of our program is to keep the size of each class
small enough so that students benefit from individualized mentoring from faculty.
At the same time, our students enjoy clinical experiences all across the United States
in local school districts, major medical centers, in conjunction with physician practices,
in independent private practices and industrial settings.
Our faculty have a wide variety of research and clinical interests: psychoacoustics,
balance function, cochlear implants, amplification, signal processing, educational
audiology, rehabilitation and counseling audiology, and selective auditory attention.This diversity offers unique perspectives in the field of audiology and access to
a wealth of information and clinical/applied practice for our students.
The program is located in the heart of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.
The 15,000 sq. ft. facility provides the most up-to-date facilities available for
both patients and students. We also share close collaborations with the departments
at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and Texas Tech University.
We invite you to come visit us at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. Meet
our faculty. Talk with our students. See why we're committed to being at the forefront
of audiology education.
