Deaf/Hard of Hearing Education

The Education of the Deaf Program at MSU prepares educators to effectively teach students who are deaf or hard of hearing in a variety of educational settings. The MSU program embraces a comprehensive approach to preparing teachers with a goal toward providing educators with the knowledge and skills to work with children and their families from a diversity of perspectives and backgrounds. The emphasis is on appropriately meeting the individual needs of children and youth, rather than promoting a specific philosophy. Students graduating from MSU will be prepared to work in a wide range of programs.
