Gallaudet's Department of Government and Public Affairs focuses especially on issues and circumstances affecting deaf and hard of hearing people as well as people with disabilities throughout the United States and the world.
Students collaborate with a faculty of excellent teachers and scholars to gain knowledge of government and current events, along with skills in research, communication and critical thinking. A wide variety of experiential opportunities prepares students for careers in public administration, public policy, government, law, nonprofit agencies and nongovernmental organizations.
The Master of Public Administration program has an excellent reputation for preparing professionals who are deaf and hard of hearing, or who work with deaf and hard of hearing colleagues, to manage and lead in the public sector.
Most recent department alumni are employed or pursuing advanced studies within one year of graduation. Read more about our alumni outcomes.Faculty, Beyond the Classroom, Success Stories
