Deaf Education

The Deaf Education Program at Utah State University offers teacher training in both Bilingual- Bicultural (ASL/English) and Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) to earn a Master of Education degree.  This is not a single, comprehensive program – but rather two distinct training programs that collaborate and support one another, yet remain specific in their approaches in the preparation of teachers of children who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH).  Both programs utilize best practice and research based methodology in preparing teachers to meet the unique and individual needs of the children and families they serve.

The Deaf Education program offers options for students who wish to earn the ASL minor.

The DHH Endorsement is available for currently licensed educators and speech-language pathologists to improve knowledge and skills for serving children who are DHH in their professional settings.
