The accredited M.Ed. in Deaf Education program prepares competent professionals in either Bilingual/Bicultural (ASL/English) Deaf Education or Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) Deaf
Education. Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to apply for national certification through the Council on Education of the Deaf (CED) and to obtain an educator’s
license in the state of Utah. Graduates of the Listening and Spoken Language emphasis area are eligible for a DHH endorsement to attach to their educator’s license as well as the 0-3 Early Intervention II Credential through the Utah Department of Health.

The master’s degree program is a two-year post-baccalaureate residency program. Deadline for applications is flexible up to the summer semester prior to entering the program in the fall. Applicants should begin this process with sufficient time for letters of recommendation, GRE or MAT scores, and transcripts to arrive at least one month before the fall semester begins. Applicants will need training at the undergraduate level in a related area (early childhood, elementary, secondary, Deaf Education, special education, speech language pathology, audiology, etc). All students are considered for financial aid based on merit. There are no special WICHE/WRGP requirements or deadlines.
