What Can You Do With A Major In Deaf Education

The B.A.E. in Deaf Education is a "comprehensive" program undergoing accreditation by the Council on the Education of the Deaf (CED). Pre-service teachers must be prepared for the diverse nature of students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH). Our philosophy is to respect and address diversity within the field by ensuring that all graduates are well-prepared and equipped for the challenges of educating all students with hearing loss. Pre-service teachers in the program will learn a comprehensive and balanced perspective of students' varying communication modes (signed or spoken language), language and academic proficiency levels, use of hearing technology (hearing aids or cochlear implants), family dynamics, and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Because these characteristics directly impact a child's learning experiences, educational services, emotional development, and social interactions, it is of utmost importance that graduates of our program are experienced and adept in all of these aforementioned areas.
