Vocology Certificate in Vocology

Diploma Description

Vocology is a relatively young field that integrates the medical, scientific, and artistic aspects of voice habilitation. It is, by its nature, highly multidisciplinary and spans multiple professions that study, train, and care for vocalists. The fully online Certificate in Vocology provides foundational knowledge for anyone engaged in voice habilitation, including singing voice pedagogues, speech-language pathologists, voice and speech trainers, choral directors, and laryngologists. Upon successfully completing this certificate, you will have gained a deep understanding of the principles of voice production, developed practical knowledge and skills in measuring and analyzing the voice, and learned best practices for voice training. Special attention will be placed on the scopes of practice of the different professionals involved in habilitating and rehabilitating voices. Additionally, you will develop skills being a good consumer of voice research and developing your own research project. The content of this certificate is geared toward preparing individuals for the Pan American Vocology Association Recognized Vocologist (PAVA-RV) exam. PAVA provides this recognition to individuals but does not endorse specific programs of study.

The Certificate in Vocology can be completed in as little as a year and a half. It must be completed within three years of taking the first certificate-eligible course.
