The M.A. teacher preparation program prepares entry-level educators seeking state licensure in the area of deaf and hard of hearing students and CED certification in the education of deaf and hard of hearing students.
Applicants who need prerequisites may have to take an additional year of studies. Since all undergraduate Education courses at Gallaudet are conducted in ASL, students who wish to fulfill prerequisites courses in education at Gallaudet are only able to do so if they possess adequate ASL skills. It is strongly recommended that applicants complete prerequisites before entering the M.A. teacher preparation program.
