Our audiology (Au.D.) students presented their research for Capstone Research Day on April 24th. The capstone research project is a graduation requirement for the doctoral program in audiology, and this event gave our our eleven graduating students the opportunity to share their research with the department. Their research covered a wide variety of topics in audiology, not limited to: speech perception, classroom listening environments, auditory working memory, and hearing and hearing loss across the lifespan. Congratulations to all of our students on this great accomplishment!
