Visiting a Course

It is the Program's policy that students planning to visit a course without formally taking it for a letter grade register for that course as an auditor and that they not ask the instructor for permission to avoid registration. The reason for this is that the ability of the Program to offer a substantial number of advanced courses in acoustics requires that the overall enrollments be above university-established thresholds.



Founded in 1965, Penn State's Graduate Program in Acoustics has become the leading resource for graduate education in acoustics in the United States. The interdisciplinary program leads to the degrees: Master of Engineering in Acoustics (M.Eng.), Master of Science in Acoustics (M.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy in Acoustics (Ph.D.)
