Perhaps no other area of study does more to prepare world-changing leaders than Arts and Humanities. Here is where you will be challenged to embrace the transformative power through the shared human experience. History, deaf studies, philosophy, the arts, and international studies are all presented in a curriculum that embraces interdisciplinary learning, collaboration within diverse groups, critical thinking, and comprehension of cultural and global issues.
Gallaudet is the only university in the world where students live and learn in ASL and English. So it should come as no surprise that we believe Arts and Humanities are all about expressing yourself. We have the curriculum, talented faculty, expansive creative spaces, and advanced technology to ensure you have all you need for your educational journey.
By studying and living at the world’s only bilingual ASL and English university, you will become fluent in ASL and gain firsthand insight into the global deaf and hard of hearing community. Gain unparalleled professional experience right on campus as you help create an exhibit for the Gallaudet Museum, develop the Gallaudet Almanac, host an annual deaf alumnae panel or collaborate on faculty research.
Overview Students must pass GSR 102, GSR 103 and DST 101 with a grade of “B” or better prior to declaring a minor in Deaf Studies.
