The Deaf Education program at University of Tulsa is a comprehensive Deaf Education program that is accredited through the Council on Education of the Deaf. While our focus is on a bilingual, bicultural approach and the use of bilingual teaching techniques is emphasized (and our students must take four semesters of American Sign Language), Deaf Education majors also learn about audiology and speech development through courses in the Department of Communication Disorders. Students graduating from this program are eligible for CED certification in Deaf Education, and may choose to double major in Elementary or Secondary Education through the School of Urban Education. Our graduates have gone on to become teachers of the deaf, early interventionists, doctors of audiology, or to receive their master’s degree in Deaf Education and related fields.
Thanks to a grant written by Dr. Baker, junior and senior level Deaf Education students are eligible to receive a grant that pays up to 50% of their tuition to TU. This grant will not reduce other merit scholarships or aid provided to the student by the university. Email Dr. Baker to learn more about this wonderful opportunity!
