Audiology Investigative Projects

During the third year of the program students complete an investigative project. Under the guidance of a faculty advisor and project committee, the student selects a specific clinical or professional issue to research and analyze.

The objectives of the investigative projects are:
  • To synthesize a body of literature related to a specific topic or problem in audiology
  • To cultivate professional writing skills
  • To acquire didactic skills for dissemination of professional information
  • To develop organizational and verbal tools needed for professional presentations
Speech Language Pathology Optional Thesis

Many students in graduate school choose to do a master's thesis, thereby gaining valuable research experience. A thesis project is data-based and may be an original or replication study. Often students present the results of their research at a professional meeting or publish results in a professional journal. The thesis project is optional in the speech-language pathology curriculum and students are encouraged to consider choosing this option.
