Hearing at Purdue

Few institutions in the world compare with Purdue’s combination of pioneering research, leadership in graduate and clinical education, and a full array of clinical services. Hearing research is conducted by Purdue faculty at all levels from environment and sound, through cochlea to brainstem to cortex to behavior. Clinical faculty treat people from infancy through old age in the M.D. Steer Audiology Clinic while providing pivotal roles in translational research. Faculty and students across five departments and schools converge weekly to share their latest findings on an exceptionally broad array of questions spanning animal communication, applied acoustics, computational modeling, developmental neurobiology, electrophysiology, neurophysiology, plasticity, and speech perception. Purdue faculty have a strong commitment to graduate education providing degree opportunities in Doctor of Audiology (AuD), PhD, and AuD/PhD.
