Gallaudet University offers a wide selection of online courses and programs for undergraduate, graduate, or professional studies credit. These “anytime, anywhere” learning opportunities allow students at a distance to engage in learning at the time and place of their choosing.
There are several avenues for experiencing online learning at Gallaudet University. Explore the options below to help you decide which one best meets your needs and interests.
For non-degree/professional development students
The Center for Continuing and Online Education (CCOE) offers a variety of PST courses (American Sign Language (ASL), Deaf Studies, Linguistics, Interpreting, Deaf Education, and among others) for Professional Studies and Training (PST) credit for non-degree-seeking students. PST credits are not applicable towards a degree program at Gallaudet. PST credits may be accepted at another institution or state depending on their specific credit transfer policies. All PST, PSG, and ASL courses are RID-CEU eligible, at a rate of 1.5 CEUs per credit.
For online degree and certificate programs
You have commitments-career, family, and community- but you can still fulfill your dream of getting a bachelor's or master's degree and do it around your busy lifestyle by taking online courses!
Good time management skills are essential to succeed in these highly interactive and learner-centered courses. Readings, assignments, and activities are posted online. Students are required to log in to submit assignments electronically and participate in course discussions. Students must have Internet access and are expected to have basic computer and Internet literacy.
At Gallaudet, we use an on-line course shell called Blackboard to support our online courses. To participate you should first make sure you have the right equipment.
