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.
