Overview

 

The SHBT PhD Program employs a two-tiered approach to multidisciplinary education.

 

First Tier: Core Curriculum – Master core material in the field of speech and hearing. The core curriculum provides a breadth of scientific and clinical knowledge, and exposure to diverse ways of thinking that are necessary to be an effective leader in the speech and hearing sciences. Knowledge of the physical and biological sciences is necessary to appreciate and understand basic science research in the field of speech and hearing. An introduction to clinical issues in otology, laryngology, audiology, and speech-language pathology is similarly important.

 

Second Tier: Area of Concentration – Plan a concentration with a program combining coursework and research in a specific focus area. The critical feature of this tier is depth. Mastery of fundamental concepts is expected and tested by the Oral Qualifying Exam.
