“Specialty tracks: No explicit tracks exist, but students design part of their own curriculum (4 or more credits) by taking electives of their choice. Some take research credits to do in-lab research, whereas others may take more advanced Au.D. or PhD-level courses within our department or others (eg Psychology, Human Development and Family Studies, Educational Studies, Sociology).” “Capstone projects have two tracks: 1) Evidence-based-practice research paper, where are clinically relevant question is raised and the student explores all of the evidence being current best practice related to the question of interest. This project takes place over two semesters, and culminates in a research paper and a poster presentation in the yearly department symposium, as well as submission to the state-level conference or a national conference. 2) lab-based research, which typically takes place over at least three semesters, and results in an internal paper and poster, as well often a journ
