About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Learners will be able to classify disorder and treatments of the outer, inner, and middle ear, identify the basic anatomy and physiology of the speaking and singing voice, and describe the role of surgery for sinusitis and activity evaluation. Illustrated images and CT scans will be used to review the anatomy of the paranasal sinuses. The microscopic appearance of the sinus mucosa will also be reviewed, utilizing dynamic multimedia to enhance your understanding. Learners will also assess the importance of mucociliary function in normal sinus anatomy. From this learners will be introduced to efficient voice production methods. Specifically, you will learn how vocal inefficiencies can lead to the development of voice disorders.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
