M.A. in Deaf Education
Licensure Disclosure: M.A. in Education: Teacher...
College Hall 410A
Gallaudet University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) and recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a Title IV approved institution.
The M.A. in Education: Teacher Preparation (Deaf Education, Early Childhood Education & Deaf Education, Elementary Education & Deaf Education, and Secondary Education & Deaf Education) program is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). The program is also approved by the District of Columbia Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) and licensed by the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC).
In compliance with the U.S. Department of Education and the District of Columbia Higher Education Licensure Commission (HELC) requirements for participation in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA), the University provides information pertaining to this program and teacher educator licensure within each of the U.S. states and territories.
This program is designed to meet the educational requirements for teacher educator licensure in the District of Columbia.
If you intend to secure licensure outside of Washington, D.C., then BEFORE beginning the Gallaudet program, review the Professional Licensure by State page for the state or territory of interest. This will help you determine whether Gallaudet has obtained confirmation from the state or territory that the M.A. in Education: Teacher Preparation (Deaf Education, Early Childhood Education & Deaf Education, Elementary Education & Deaf Education, and Secondary Education & Deaf Education) program meets, does not meet, or cannot be confirmed as meeting the educational requirements for licensure.
When it comes to licensure requirements, not all states and territories recognize educational programs from other states and territories in the same manner. Thus, if the program “cannot be confirmed as meeting” the educational requirements for licensure in a particular locality, it may nevertheless meet all or a portion of the educational requirements. In this instance, we recommend directly contacting the licensing agency for confirmation before beginning the Gallaudet program.
Of course, state and territory regulations can change. So we recommend that, should you pursue the Gallaudet program, you regularly check licensure requirements throughout your studies to ensure ongoing eligibility.
While Gallaudet University strives to provide current and accurate information, human error may occur, and state requirements may change or be updated without our knowledge. Last revised June 30, 2020.
