The Deaf Education program at UNF is currently in transition. We are in the process of developing a proposal to elevate our undergraduate degree to a stand-alone BA in Deaf Education rather than a concentration under Special Education. Because of this transition, at this time we are no longer admitting students into the undergraduate nor graduate programs. We anticipate admitting the first cohort of students to the new program in 2016. In the not so distant future, our hope is to create an online MA program in Deafness after the BA program is underway. Please continue to check our website to read periodic updates or feel free to email the Program Director, Dr. Caroline Guardino in the Department of Exceptional, Deaf, and Interpreter Education: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
