Deaf and Hard of Hearing EdM Initial

Master of Education (Ed.M.) in Deaf & Hard of Hearing

With initial certification in teacher of the d/Deaf & Hard of Hearing (pre-K-12)


The Master of Education (Ed.M.) in the Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is one of the first teacher education programs in the country. We provide an intensive study of the educational issues of individuals who are d/Deaf or hard of hearing from the perspectives of psychology, anthropology, linguistics, child development, pedagogy, and regular education with the aim of preparing teachers who will address the educational and literacy needs of these children. We serve and prepare individuals for work with children who possess a wide range of hearing losses in classes using diverse communication systems, as well as for work with children who have typical hearing.
