The Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) program is a four-year professional doctorate program offered jointly by the UW-Madison Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders and the UW-Stevens Point School of Communication Sciences and Disorders. In this unique program, lecture classes are taught simultaneously at both campuses; videoconferencing allows you to interact with students and faculty at the remote campus. Laboratory experiences are taught separately, using the same curriculum, on each campus. Summer academic course work is entirely online, and clinical experiences take place both on and off campus.
