The Specialist Certificate in Hearing Science (25 points) is designed to provide graduates with the foundations in audiological science. Graduates will broaden their professional impact in making a difference in the lives of individuals with communication and functional audiological impairment within their existing professional context.
The course will be delivered online over a 12 week period from January.
The first part of the subject is designed to provide the theoretical foundation underpinning the functions and limitations of normal and abnormal auditory function respectively. Students will first be introduced to the physical properties of sound and its ability to influence perception of sound. The anatomical and physiological structures involved in normal auditory function across the lifespan will be analysed with a focus on forming explanations for the impacts on normal speech and language development and the normal changes associated with aging. This will lead us into the incidence, risk factors, pathophysiology and biopsychosocial impacts of auditory dysfunction in the population ut...
