Program Description:

The Canisius College Deaf Education program enables graduate students to earn a master of science degree to teach students who are deaf or hard of hearing from birth through age 21 anywhere in the United States. Certification is received from New York State and from the Council on the Education of the Deaf (CED), the only national organization that grants teacher certification to graduates of accredited deaf education programs in colleges and universities.

The Canisius College Deaf Education program is a collaborative program with St. Mary’s School of the Deaf. Canisius has had this special arrangement with St. Mary’s for more than 40 years and is located less than one mile from the St. Mary’s campus. Graduate interns can choose to live at St. Mary’s while they attend the graduate program. This arrangement with St. Mary’s gives interns a unique opportunity to interact on a more continuous basis with the resident students attending the school.

Our rigorous two-year graduate program that prepares you to teach children in a wide variety of settings: residential schools, public day schools, resource rooms, inclusion settings and itinerant situations.
