About the Deaf Education Program

The Deaf Education Program prepares students to work in a school setting where deaf and hard of hearing children are educated. The certificate offered is designed specifically for deaf and hard of hearing students who wish to work as a residential counselor at a school for the deaf, or as a teacher aide in a classroom with deaf and hard of hearing students.

Theoretical background in the education of deaf and hard of hearing students along with practical application of these theories is emphasized throughout the program. The curriculum was designed with input from the California School for the Deaf (CSD) administration to ensure that the graduates of the program are qualified prepared for employment opportunities at CSD and other programs serving deaf and hard of hearing children.
