The Graduate Certificate Program in Deaf History offers training in the growing field of deaf history. It provides graduate level courses in a broad range of related topics, including Deaf American, European, Media, and Disability history. Our courses promote history research methods and content, emphasizing how techniques of social and cultural history can be applied to the history of deaf people and communities around the world. Professionals who learn about the history of deaf people will bring new insights and scholarship to their teaching, sign language interpreting, researching, writing, counseling, and social work.
