The Springfield College Deaf studies minor is perfect for students interested in learning how to best serve those who are Deaf or hard of hearing.
The curriculum features courses that delve into the communication, audiological, linguistic, cultural, educational, and social aspects of this population. Through these classes, students will gain an understanding of Deaf history and culture, learn basic sign language skills, in addition to learning about basic medical aspects of hearing loss, including assessment, assistive technology, and therapeutic techniques.
Ideal for all undergraduate students, the minor can help students develop an understanding of the language and culture of the Deaf.
