The purpose of the Bachelor and Master training programme of Logopaedic and Audiological Sciences is
- To provide advanced knowledge and insights in existing theories and scientific research
- To evaluate in a critical way research concerning logopaedic and audiological disorders
- To set up scientific research (both on an easy and complex level in the master programme) concerning logopaedic and audiological topics
In doing so, due attention goes out to communication in general as well as specific aspects such as the voice, speech, language and hearing (incl vestibulology). The Bachelor and the Master programme each offer a graduation programme in logopaedics and a graduation programme in audiology. The logopaedic graduation programme chiefly hones in on voice, speech and language disorders whereas the audiology graduation programme focuses on hearing disorders.
The Bachelor training programme lays the foundations intended to enable students to meet the attainment targets under the Master’s training programme. Masters of Logopaedic and Audiological Sciences are expected to be duly capable of making a significant contribution to reaching a diagnosis in patients, of conducting their own examinations for this purpose, of interpreting the findings of their own examinations and of relating these findings to an efficient therapy treatment which can be adjusted to suit further developments. Depending on the graduation programme selected, due emphasis goes out to either logopaedic or audiological disorders. In order for students to accomplish these attainment targets, a broad-based multidisciplinary and scientifically underpinned training is required, linked with thorough practice-focused training. In addition, a considerable focus of attention also goes out conducting scientific research enabling fresh insights, diagnostic or therapy techniques to be generated.
