The Advanced Studies in Deaf Education master of arts program is designed specifically for teachers of deaf and hard of hearing students who have state licensure in deaf education or provisional CED certification (or the equivalent) and who are currently working in the field. This is a self-paced, individualized degree program offering specializations based on the interests of the candidate and his/her educational background and teaching experience with deaf and hard of hearing students.

The program offers two delivery options. The on-campus program is a self-paced, individualized degree program. The on-line program follows an existing plan of study in one of two specializations: Educating Students with Disabilities or ASL & English Bilingual Early Childhood Education.
