What is audiology? Audiologists provide a wide range of assessment, habilitative, and rehabilitative services to individuals of all ages who are at risk for, or living with, hearing impairment. They use special tests and protocols to evaluate hearing abilities and to assess the impact of hearing problems on communication and quality of life.

Western University’s Master of Clinical Science (MClSc) program in audiology is a world leader in the profession and has pioneered best practices for paediatric audiology. Individualized learning happens through laboratory experiences and teaching clinics, low student-faculty ratios, and access to the school's state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities. The School of Communication Sciences and Disorders is home to Canada's largest on-site speech and hearing clinic, the H.A. Leeper Speech and Hearing Clinic.
