Deaf Studies Major, BS in Education – Deaf Education Concentration (Secondary Education Specialization)


Progression Requirements

Progression to the Deaf Education concentration with specialization in secondary education requires a 2.75 cumulative GPA after a minimum of 45 semester hours of coursework and completion of ASL 211 *. Once candidates formally progress to the specialization, they must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.75 while in the program. Students must earn a grade of B or better in ASL 111 , ASL 112 , ASL 211 *, ASL 212 *, ASL 311 *, and EDDE 310 , and a C or better in all teacher education courses. Students with less than a 2.75 GPA for two consecutive semesters will be dropped from the program. Students who fail to meet the standards for professional conduct during the course of their fieldwork will not be retained in the major.

Program coursework will allow students to obtain a deaf education license (Pre K-12) and a secondary education license (7-12) in the chosen secondary content area at the conclusion of the post-baccalaureate professional year.

uTrack Requirements

Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students.
