Department of Audiology and Speech Language Pathology
Goals And Objectives
This is a four semester full time post graduate dual PG program in Audiology and Speech Pathology with two years duration. The duration of each semester is six months. In recent years, there has been an increase in the global demand for audiologists due to the modernization of audiology, especially in the western and Middle East countries. This has resulted in a major drain of skilled audiologists to these countries and a shortage of qualified audiology and speech pathology professionals in India.
