Faculty and Staff
Our Education programs are designed to prepare students for careers as teachers, researchers, educational leaders, and international development advocates. Our faculty boasts nationally and internationally renowned scholars whose goal is to mentor students in critical theory, interdisciplinary connections, social and professional identities, and social responsibility. Whether you’re interested in pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in General Education or branching into our Master’s program to focus your studies on Deaf education, we have various tracks available to suit your interests and prepare you for success in your education career.
Through the Education programs, students can work their way to full licensure. Students who specialize in Early Childhood Education work with infants to third grade.
Students who graduate with their B.A. in Education with a specialization in Elementary Education can work their way toward full licensure in working with kindergarten through sixth grade.
Students in this B.A. or B.S. track can work their way toward full licensure in working with students in grades 6-12.

Education programs prepare students to be professionals in their field interacting and communicating fluently with deaf and hard of hearing people and children with diverse backgrounds. Graduates will be prepared leaders and advocates actively engaging with the people of their community.
Our professors equip students through their expertise and passion for teaching and lead students through all the following.
Our model for teaching is through a reflective method. Not only do we expect students and faculty to work–or reflect–off of each other, but from the very first courses, students will be presented with opportunities to engage in peer teaching during class. Through both individual and group work, this will give students a chance to reflect on their experiences and work.
In addition to internship opportunities, the graduates of our program could qualify for licensure in the District of Columbia Public Schools. This is appealing to any student because this license opens you up to teaching opportunities in the other states that are a part of the District’s inter-state reciprocity agreement for teacher certification, giving you the advantage of being licensed in multiple states.
We currently offer four graduate-level certificates through the Center for Continuing and Online Education, two of which are aimed at Educators. Our ASL/English Bilingual Early Childhood Deaf Education: Birth to 5, and Educating Deaf Students with Disabilities Certificates have been designed to serve the current and demanding needs of education professionals. With the flexibility of an online workspace and substantially lower tuition costs, our Certificate Programs set professionals up for success! Check with Graduate Admissions to learn more about requirements and procedures to earn your certificate and take the next step in your professional development.
Our strong network of internship locations allows students to take the skills they’ve learned in the classroom and put them to practice in the real world.
The Undergraduate Teacher Education Program at Gallaudet University can be best described as one that models a reflective learning and teaching process. Students in our program are encouraged to question and to challenge what they read and observe through reflective learning techniques.
