Welcome to Gallaudet University and greetings from the Office of International Affairs (OIA)! OIA is authorized by the U.S. Department of State to operate several programs that recruit individuals from around the world for educational purposes. Regardless of your goals, Gallaudet has a program in place that will provide you with the tools you need to succeed.
Deaf and hard of hearing undergraduate students can choose from a wide variety of majors leading to a bachelor of arts, or a bachelor of science degree. Undergraduate students have the option of designing their own self-directed major, where they can select classes from a variety of departments at Gallaudet.
All students may take courses offered at 13 other institutions of higher learning that are members of the Consortium of Universities of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area.
Graduate programs, open to deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing students, include master of arts or master of science degrees, specialist degrees, certificates, and doctoral degrees in a variety of fields involving professional services to deaf and hard of hearing people.
The International Special Student (ISS) program is a tremendous learning experience designed for non-U.S. students who are not pursuing an academic degree at Gallaudet University. The one- or two-semester program is customized to meet the needs of each scholar.
The International Visiting Scholar (IVS) program was established to accommodate a limited number of professors, researchers, and other scholars who wish to use the facilities at Gallaudet University each academic year.
If you are looking to establish a solid foundation in English, the University’s English Language Institute (ELI) provides an intensive English as a Second Language program for American and international deaf and hard of hearing students. Bilingual instruction in both American Sign Language and written English provides a multicultural environment for ELI students to achieve academic, professional, and personal language goals.
