Areas of Study

Welcome to the Center of Continuing Education

Not everyone moves through formal education in the same way – and that’s OK!

That’s why we offer ways to earn professional studies and continuing education credits and certificates.

Access a variety of workshops, outreach programs, courses, and webinars year-round. All of our programming is tailored for deaf and hard of hearing individuals and their families. Our learning opportunities include non-degree credit offerings and are delivered in a bilingual (ASL/English) learning environment. Programs are offered via traditional classroom settings and online and distance learning.
