Deaf Studies Minor

The Deaf Studies minor takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of deaf and hard-of-hearing people in American and world society. The minor promotes the understanding of deaf people as a linguistic and cultural group and encourages students to analyze existing stereotypes and policies relating to deaf and hard-of-hearing people in order to engage and effect change in the community at-large.
