(1 credit) AUD 6404—Auditory and Vestibular Pathologies This course provides a comprehensive study of pathologies affecting the conductive, sensory, neural, and vestibular mechanisms, as well as methods for their differential diagnosis. Embryological development of the ear is examined. Basic concepts of genetics, including their effects on, diagnosis of, and management of auditory and vestibular function are discussed. Case studies are reviewed. (4 credits) AUD 6406—Overview of Amplification II This course provides integration of theoretical and practical concepts of fitting and verification of hearing instruments. Components and features available on hearing instruments are presented. (3 credits) AUD 6406L—Amplification Lab II This laboratory course provides students with practical application supplementing AUD 6406. (1 credit) AUD 6408—Auditory Processing Evaluation and Treatment This course provides a comprehensive study of auditory processing evaluation and treatment with foci on the underlying neurophysiological mechanisms and models of an auditory processing disorder. Opportunities will be provided to discuss case studies and gain hands-on experience performing behavioral and objective auditory processing measures. (2 credits) AUD 6502—Hearing Conservation This course provides a study of topics related to hearing conservation, including the effects of noise on hearing, ototoxicity, occupational and nonoccupational noise exposure, federal regulations related to the prevention of hearing loss, sound surveys, and classroom acoustics. (2 credits) AUD 6504—Implantable Hearing Technologies This course provides a study of implantable auditory devices, including cochlear implants, osseointegrated devices (OID), middle ear implants, and auditory brainstem implants. Candidacy criteria, surgical considerations, and treatment methods are explored in the pediatric and adult populations. (2 credits) AUD 6508—Tinnitus Evaluation and Management This course provides an introduction to tinnitus evaluation and treatment, examining the epidemiology and theoretical basis of tinnitus. Assessment methods, treatment strategies, and psychosocial effects are examined in detail. (2 credits) AUD 6510—Clinic I Participation in supervised auditory and vestibular evaluation, management, and treatment. Weekly meetings with supervisors and/or documentation is required. (1 credit) AUD 6511—Clinic II Participation in supervised auditory and vestibular evaluation, management, and treatment. Weekly meetings with supervisors and/or documentation is required. (2 credits) AUD 6512—Clinic III Participation in supervised auditory and vestibular evaluation, management, and treatment. Weekly meetings with supervisors and/or documentation is required. (2 credits) AUD 7030—Aging and the Auditory/Vestibular System United Kingdom Program Only: Students will be provided with an overview of gerontology with emphasis given to differentiation between the normal aging process and pathological changes related to auditory and vestibular disorders. (2 credits) AUD 7031—Geriatric Audiology This course will provide students with an overview of gerontology. A holistic approach to patient care encompassing biological, social, psychological, and cultural aspects related to aging will be considered. Analysis of day-to-day functioning of the aging patient, particularly related to sensory changes, will be covered. An emphasis will be placed on differentiation between normal aging processes and pathological processes. (1 credit) AUD—7051 Research Methods in Audiology II This course provides a detailed study of research design, data collection, analysis, and evaluation. The breadth and depth of clinical research is explored as students gain practice in accessing, evaluating, and designingmedical, allied health, and other scientific literature to support clinical decision-making, patient- and family-centered care, and quality improvement efforts in the provision of audiological services. (3 credits) AUD 7070—Pharmacology for Audiology United Kingdom Program Only: In this course, students are presented with the classes of drugs used in clinical practice with emphasis on activity, mode of action, side effects, toxicity, and drug interactions as they relate to auditory and vestibular function. (3 credits)
