Earn Your Bachelor’s at Seton Hill & Your Doctor of Audiology Degree at Salus University
Audiologists are health professionals who diagnose and treat hearing loss and related disorders, including balance disorders and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Some specialize in working with children.
Seton Hill University’s partnership with Salus University makes it easier for you to earn your undergraduate degree in audiology and then move right into doctoral work at the Salus University College of Audiology.

While most audiologists work in healthcare facilities such as hospitals, physician’s offices and audiology clinics, some are employed in other areas, such as education. The job outlook for audiologists is quite good. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates it will continue to grow faster than average, at a rate of 29% through 2024. In 2015, the median annual wage for audiologists was $74,890. The award-winning Career and Professional Development Center at Seton Hill will help you get ready for your future.
Boyle Health Sciences Center
Seton Hill’s new Boyle Health Sciences Center provides science students with the best in academic, clinical and research facilities and resources.
Because laboratory courses at Seton Hill are small, you will do more than just watch experiments - you will perform them yourself, using the same sophisticated facilities and equipment that your professors use.
Research & Internship Opportunities
As an upperclassman, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in ongoing research, both here on campus and through research internships at universities and institutions across the country.
Recent science and health majors at Seton Hill have participated in research projects at the Mayo Clinic (cell biology), Ohio State University (HIV) and Johns Hopkins University (prostate cancer).
How the Partnership Works: Start at Seton Hill, Finish Up at Salus University
Seton Hill’s agreement with Salus University’s College of Audiology is composed of two phases.
- Phase I: You apply and are accepted into the Audiology Health Science Program at Seton Hill. Salus University will be notified that you are a candidate for one of the medical school seats they reserve for Seton Hill students. You then earn your Bachelor of Science in Audiology Health Science from Seton Hill, which includes prerequisites for the Doctor of Audiology Degree Program at Salus University. This generally takes four years.
- Phase II: You “officially” apply to Salus University. Once accepted, you earn you Doctor of Audiology degree.
Seton Hill advisors and representatives from Salus University will communicate with you as you advance through Phase I, to ensure that you remain eligible to take advantage of your reserved seat at Salus for Phase II.
