The undergraduate programs of Gallaudet University are designed to produce graduates who are well-informed about the world around them, about civilizations and their achievements, and about themselves as human beings. Students will ultimately be able to exercise sound independent judgment necessary to enable them to provide leadership in both the workplace and the community. The undergraduate curriculum will provide students with a foundation for lifelong learning by offering opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge, and understanding needed for productive and fulfilling citizenship in a diverse and interrelated world. Gallaudet graduates will, as a result, have the competencies required to be competitive in their post-graduate endeavors.
Undergraduate programs and courses are offered by academic departments in the College of Liberal Arts, Sciences, and Technologies (CLAST) and the Graduate School and Professional Programs (GSPP).
A candidate for graduation with the baccalaureate degrees must select a major and has the option of selecting additional majors and minors. Selecting more than one major or minor may extend the length of time required to complete the degree. Students may also develop their own self-directed major, wherein a customized program of study is selected by the student and a faculty advisor.
