Gallaudet University delivers undergraduate, graduate and professional studies courses for deaf and hard of hearing people, their families, and the professionals who work with them to various sites across the United States. These courses provide opportunities to study with recognized experts in such fields as American Sign Language, Linguistics, Deaf Studies, Deaf Education, Advocacy and Interpreting.

These courses are provided through the Gallaudet University Regional Centers, often in collaboration with sponsoring agencies serving deaf and hearing communities. Schools for deaf students, special education school districts, interpreter training programs, or professional organizations can be sponsoring agencies.

Customized Training - Training opportunities can be tailored to address the needs and interests of deaf and hard of hearing individuals, their families and communities, and the professionals who work with them. These trainings are typically modifications of extension courses. Trainings can be offered online, on campus, as a webinar, or through a combination of teaching and learning formats that best meet the needs of the requester and audience.
