On completion of the Bachelor of Audiometry at University of New England course students will possess an understanding for the broader framework of perception, developmental and physiological psychology, the roles they play in hearing, and appreciate theoretical principles underpinning audiometric assessment and rehabilitation techniques. Students also choose to complement the core knowledge in audiometry and psychology with a biological, linguistic or applied/professional focus. Additional areas can then be covered as determined by the needs of the student.
This degree is articulated with the Diploma of Audiometry at TAFE. Graduates will possess the academic knowledge and clinical skills required for a comprehensive career in audiometry, and with further training for a profession in audiology.
There is also the option of including an accredited major in psychology which would also allow for further training in psychology.
Graduates will possess a body of psychological knowledge that focuses on the processes that underlie sensation and perception, the development of these and other psychological attributes, how psychological attributes are measured, and the skills for generating and evaluating the research data that results in this knowledge. Additional fields allow for specialisation in bioscience, linguistics or professional practice. This knowledge will be taught in lectures, unit materials and online activities and will be assessed throughout the course by a range of different activities and assessments (eg lectures, practicums, essays, reports, online labs, exams). Graduates will be exposed to information provided within each unit which embeds current global knowledge within the relevant discipline (eg textbooks and lectures).
Graduates will have skills that enable them to investigate, synthesise and communicate the ideas and information acquired from their study. These communication skills will be taught and practised in lectures, tutorials, practicums and online activities and will include oral, online and written communication skills that are appropriate for graduates to use within the professional workplace.
Graduates will use autonomy and judgement in the application of critical thinking and problem solving. Graduates will be able to examine social problems and solutions within different social contexts.
Graduates will be taught how to recognise relevant information and to use appropriate media, tools and methodologies to locate, access and use information. Through assessment tasks, they will learn how to critically evaluate the sources, values, and validity of information, and to use information in critical and creative thinking.
