Bloomsburg University's Education of the Deaf teacher preparation program is nationally and state accredited. The program has both Council on Exceptional Children (CEC) and Council on the Education of the Deaf (CED) national accreditation as well as Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) accreditation.
There are three programs in Education of the Deaf:
undergraduate Dual Early Childhood Education K-4 and Deaf/hard of hearing N-12 teacher certification
13-month graduate Master of Science Deaf/hard of hearing N-12 teacher certification
career concentration in Deaf/HH
Beginning fall 2014 the undergraduate Dual Early Childhood Education K-4 and Deaf/HH N-12 teacher certification program began. This 4-year B.S. Dual Certification program will prepare individuals to teach all ages of deaf children and youth and hearing children in grades K-4.
Established in 1971, our 13-month M.S. teacher certification program in Deaf/HH N-12 continues strong. Both the undergraduate and graduate program prepare prospective classroom and itinerant teachers of deaf and hard of hearing students in oral, total communication and bilingual environments.
The undergraduate Career Concentration in Deaf/HH is an 18-credit program designed for individuals wanting a foundation of information regarding deafness and individuals who are Deaf/hard of hearing.
