Immerse yourself in world languages and cultures

Gallaudet — the school that introduced American Sign Language to the world — offers a fully immersive bilingual environment, so you can study languages, education and culture simultaneously in English and ASL. At Gallaudet, you’ll also find opportunities for collaborative learning, research, internships and studying abroad in both languages. You can add Spanish or French to your studies to become multilingual.

For International and American deaf or hard of hearing students who need to strengthen their English skills for education, professional or personal purposes, Gallaudet’s English Language Institute offers the only officially credited English as a Second Language program for deaf students in the United States.
