Start your professional path of audiology

When the ability to communicate is disrupted, every aspect of daily living is affected. 
Audiologists work with patients to manage and assess issues with hearing, balance and problems occurring within the ear - including fitting and evaluating hearing aids. As an audiologist, your evaluation and treatment help clients and their families improve communication skills and cope with the difficulties of communication disorders.

Typically, the minimum entry-level education in the profession of audiology is the clinical Doctor of Audiology. Earning a Bachelor of Science in pre-audiology from SFA positions you to continue your studies toward your doctorate in audiology and prepares you for a rewarding career.

Experts in high demand

As a profession, audiology offers unparalleled opportunities working in a variety of settings with hearing-impaired patients of all ages. Audiologists are found working in hospitals and clinics, private hospitals, schools and nursing homes. They also find opportunities working in hearing aid manufacturing industries.  

Audiologists diagnose and manage patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly. They work closely with physicians and refer clients to appropriate practitioners for medical or surgical care when needed.

The degree in pre-audiology is a preprofessional program that will prepare you for further studies in audiology.
