ohio state university has just started offering a joint MA/PhD program
(which is, i assume, what you mean by a PhD/CFY prgram). since it is new,
it has a few wrinkles -- perhaps the biggest one being that they do not, at
this moment, have a mechanism in place for finding students CFY placements.
however, i anticipate that this will change in the near future and i
wouldn't let that dissuade me from considering the program if i were you.
individual faculty members are very helpful to students in this area.
the PhD program is fairly loose in structure and requires students to look
outside the department for a number of their courses. i happen to think
that's somewhat of an advantage, for there's a great deal of freedom in the
design of your chosen program.
the faculty is also strong, both clinically and psychoacoustically, and you
may choose to pursue either path or a combination of both. i've been at OSU
for three years now and i would recommend the program to anyone.
for more information, call the departmentr at (614)292-8207.
