The College of Liberal Arts, Sciences, and Technologies (CLAST) offers majors in diverse disciplines of the humanities, the sciences, technologies, and social sciences. Students select a major from a wide variety of fields and often supplement their studies by taking courses offered at other universities through the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area. Upon completion of general studies and major coursework, graduates of the College are prepared to enter the job market or to pursue
professional and graduate studies at Gallaudet or other universities.
Through a variety of faculty research projects and grants, the College has strengthened the educational experiences of students. Some examples are financially supported student research projects, student co-op work experience and internships, equipment and instructional materials for science and computer labs, scholarships and opportunities for collaboration with faculty and students at other institutions. Academic departments, businesses, and federal institutions foster an intellectually challenging environment by sponsoring writing contests, theatre productions and theatre-for-young audience performances, study abroad and work-study programs, visual and fine art shows, scholarly lectures series, and a wealth of enriching experiences in and out of the classroom.
The College features a variety of special facilities. Among these are a recently renovated science lab, fully-equipped 762-seat proscenium theatre, a 96-seat lab theatre, photography darkrooms and studios, and a state-of-the-art digital media studio.
