Free Audiology Courses

Students wishing to learn about audiology can take classes from two universities that offer online learning for free. The courses include topics like speech and hearing, how the ear works and the way music is perceived.

Open University

Students looking for audiology courses at this university can find two free courses available through the OpenLearn system. Courses provide an advanced overview of the outer, middle and inner ear and teach key information about human language.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Five audiology courses are available through MIT's OpenCourseWare. Classes teach on the biology of the ear, the cochlea's function and mechanics, speech and auditory biophysics, inner-ear development and hearing loss. A special class dealing with music perception touches on psychology and the personality/culture of music. Students also have the opportunity to study hearing through experimental approaches and explore acoustic signals to gain a better understanding of the physiology of the ear.
