Apply Now

For those interested in teaching children and youth who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing, our 13-month M.S. program certifies you to become a teacher, PK-12. (To be eligible students must first complete the Undergraduate Area of Concentration in Education of the Deaf/HH or its equivalent.)

Upon completion of our program you will be eligible for:

  • CED national certification
  • PDE state certification
  • PA Licensure as a teacher of deaf/hard of hearing from State Board of Examiners in Speech-Language and Hearing

While an undergraduate major in education is helpful because your goal is to become a teacher, it is not required. If you want to apply to our Deaf Education graduate program and your undergraduate degree is outside of the field of education (no teacher certification), then an additional prerequisite of five education methods courses is required. There is no specific list of ‘education’ courses, although one should choose foundational ‘How to Teach’ type courses.
