Responsibilities. The major responsibilities will be to teach doctoral courses in audiology in areas of expertise and interest, provide clinical supervision to doctoral students in the Louisiana Tech Speech and Hearing Center, develop a personal research program, direct doctoral student research, and participate in the ongoing implementation of the Au.D. program.  Faculty members also participate in departmental, college, and university committee work.  

The Program.  The Department of Communication Disorders, administratively housed in the College of Liberal Arts, offers a pre-professional degree in speech-language pathology, a bachelor’s degree in speech communication, an M.A. degree in speech-language pathology, and the Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D.). The program holds CAA accreditation in speech-language pathology and audiology. There are 10 full-time time faculty lines for approximately 50 full-time graduate students in speech-language pathology, 20 full-time graduate students in audiology, and 110 undergraduates; seven additional faculty serve the speech communication academic program.  The Louisiana Tech Speech and Hearing Center, housed within the department, serves as a major teaching and research source for the program and provides students with on-campus diagnostic testing and remediation for individuals of all ages and types of speech, language, and hearing disorders. Audiological facilities include double-wall, double-booth testing suites and state-of-the-art equipment for ENG, ABR, OAE, and tympanometry testing for adults and children and hearing aid dispensing. The clinical facilities also include individual and group treatment rooms with accompanying observation areas, a supportive speech and hearing science laboratory, and a student computer lab. On-campus training experiences are supplemented by a variety of opportunities in external affiliations with local, state, regional, and national facilities. The University has allocated funds for additional audiological equipment purchases to support the Au.D. program and future plans call for relocating the department to a newly renovated campus facility.
