Academic Programs - Ph.D. Programs

The PhD program at the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders is designed to prepare students for academic-research careers in speech, language, or hearing sciences. The School offers a Ph.D. in Communication Sciences and Disorders with two areas of concentration: (1) Hearing Sciences and Disorders or (2) Speech-Language Sciences and Disorders. The program is highly individualized to the needs and background of the student and is developed in accordance with the student's research interests. Each student will form a planning committee upon entry into the program, and an individualized course of study will be designed to meet the student's educational and long term goals. Mentoring is a critical component of each student's doctoral plan. Graduation requirements vary depending on the degrees the students have when entering the program. These requirements are listed in the graduate catalog.

A fully funded Ph.D. assistantship with concentration in Hearing Science is available immediately at the University of Memphis School of Communication Sciences & Disorders. The prospective student will work under the supervision of Gavin M. Bidelman, Ph.D. conducting research activity in the Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory (ACNL).
