George S. Osborne College of Audiology
Advanced Studies Certificate Programs
Since 2000, when we launched our AuD degree distance education program on AuDonline, we have been proud to offer quality online education to our students. Designed specifically for working, licensed practitioners who wanted to complete a Doctor of Audiology (AuD) degree, the AuDonline program saw its last class of Doctors of Audiology graduate in 2010, bringing the total of our AuDonline graduates to 2,119.
With the Doctor of Audiology (AuD) degree now established as the profession’s entry-level clinical degree, the Osborne College of Audiology is committed to providing new distance education that offers professionals additional educational opportunities combined with online flexibility. Utilizing our distance education program experience, our programs are specifically designed for working audiology professionals who can choose from a variety of quality online programs designed to enhance their knowledge in professional skill areas.
The first of these new programs, Advanced Studies in Cochlear Implants, ran from May 2011 through March 2012. Based on the success of this inaugural Advanced Studies course, which received high ratings from faculty and students, the College developed a second course, Tinnitus and Hyperacusis, which launches in August 2013. A third cohort for the Advanced Studies in Cochlear Implants course begins in May 2013.
Our Advanced Studies certificate programs are a limited enrollment, forty week, interdisciplinary program that present audiology professionals with an in-depth study of a specialized area of practice taught by noted specialists. Students receive current research, up to date information and best practices from faculty who helped to create and establish them for the profession. A graduate certificate in Advanced Studies from the Salus University Osborne College of Audiology is earned by all students who successfully complete the course of study.
Additional distance education program opportunities are planned for 2013, expanding the online educational classes available for practitioners and others in the profession of audiology. Each of our new programs is carefully designed to provide the value and flexibility today’s distance education students require. With a reputation for quality education and a faculty that is committed and accessible, Salus University Osborne College of Audiology students can expect - and will receive - a singular educational experience.
