Current Students

Whether students choose a degree in Birth through Kindergarten, Interpreting, Deaf Education, and Advocacy Services (IDEAS), or Special Education, a large part of their education centers on experiential learning in which they are engaged directly with the community they seek to serve. Students in our programs are uniquely positioned to learn from leaders in the field while simultaneously applying that learning in individually relevant professional settings.
