Our program faculty is comprised of experienced educators, clinicians and researchers with direct connections to the field of deaf education in New York City and beyond. Their personal experiences as teachers, practitioners and scholars will enrich your participation in coursework, field placement and community involvement. Our program has an active research agenda and you will be invited to join a research team. Presentation at conferences, publications and active participation in campus and local deaf education related events is both encouraged and expected.
