Gallaudet is dedicated to increasing the number of deaf and hard of hearing professionals in science and technology fields. Students in the Department of Science, Technology and Mathematics can choose our Pre-Medicine Program, apply for scholarships funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation or work at off-campus internships through collaborations with programs at Duke University, Tufts University and James Madison University.
Undergraduates interact extensively with faculty who are conducting federally funded research and serving as mentors for deaf and hard of hearing students and scientists throughout the nation. Department resources include new, state-of-the-art laboratories specifically designed for visual communication.
The department offers two types of undergraduate degrees in most of its major programs: Bachelor of Arts programs are designed for majors who are seeking employment directly after college or for education majors who plan to become high school science teachers. Bachelor of Science programs are designed for majors who plan to continue to graduate, medical, dental or veterinary school.
One hundred percent of recent department alumni are employed or in graduate school within one year of graduation. Read more about our alumni outcomes.
