Hi Vipul,

Interesting and a unique career option.

Though there is a lot of demand for professionals in this field, we have very less qualified and professional people in this field.

Audiologists are the speech language therapists, who basically work with individuals ( Children and Adults) to help them differentiate sounds,identifies any hearing issues with the use of tests, finds out the level of impairment, help them hearing with the help of the hearing aid etc, teaching or counsels them towards different hearing methods like sign languages etc.

Though as a B.Sc in Audiology you would be working as an audiologists, but getting into research you would have to opt for an M.Sc program. At the same time, you get to specilaise in one option at the M.Sc level

After an M.Sc, you are working into research whereby you generate new technology and at the same time, implement it on the clients or patients you deal with.
Generally as a Graduate, you would mainly be involved in taking the case history of the client, as well as preparing then for the diagnosis, whereas reading the tests report and suggestions and further assessments of the client would be played by an M.Sc graduate.
Some of the career options available at the M.Sc level includes:

  • Acousticians
  • Audiological Scientists
  • Auditory Scientists
  • ENT / Audiological Physicians
  • Hearing Aid Audiologists
  • Hearing Therapists
  • Research Audiologist

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck....

Dear Vipul,

Thanks for writing your query to www.careerguide.com!

Audiology is the study of speech and hearing disorders. The profession is in great demand. Audiologists conduct clinical activities with patients, are involved in speech & hearing research, dispense hearing aids and assistive listening devices and teach at schools and universities.

B.Ed (Special Education-Distance Mode)
Ph.D. (Audiology or Speech-Language Pathology)
Certificate Course on Communication Disorders

Please ensure that whatever course you do is recognized by Rehabilitation Council of India. Register yourself to RCI after completing the course. RCI approved degrees are recognised in India and abroad.

Career Opportunities

Audiologists can find jobs with academic (teaching in colleges/universities) and health care establishments. Several NGOs also offer good employments to these professionals.

Indian audiologists have very good scope to work abroad.

Audiologists work independently and closely with government agencies, practicing physicians and hearing aid manufacturers. Subsequently an audiologist can also start own venture of health care or teaching institution or an NGO. Income of audiologist's earnings depend on level of education and his/her efficiency in practice. Audiologist receive decent salary.

I would recommend you to do Masters and PhD to broaden your career scope.

Hope I have answered your query.
