Gallaudet’s Counseling program prepares students to become highly qualified counselors eligible for licensure as professional counselors. We offer accredited graduate counselor training programs with specializations in working with deaf and hard of hearing individuals.

Graduates from the program work in diverse environments, including schools, community mental health agencies, residential treatment facilities, hospitals, private practice, and federal, state, and local government agencies. Specialty areas include play therapy, addictions counseling, vocational rehabilitation, and functional behavioral assessment, as well as individual, family, couples, and group counseling.

The former CACREP-accredited counseling programs suspended admissions in 2019. We are now reopened as a low residency program and we plan to stay aligned with CACREP standards until we are able to reapply for CACREP accreditation in the fall of 2024.
