Do you want to teach deaf and hard of hearing students?

Why Hunter’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing Teacher Training Program?

Dual Certification: Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education certification plus general education grades 1-6 certification if needed. (See “Two programs within the Deaf and Hard of Hearing program” below for more information.)

Comprehensive Program: Prepares you to teach deaf and hard of hearing pupils from birth to 12th grade in a variety of educational settings.

Technology: Uses advanced technology to improve learning. Examples include video assignments, observations outside of NYC via video conferencing and hybrid online course/program materials.

Night Courses: Courses meet once a week at either 4:30-7 or 7:10-9:40 with the exception of field experiences and student teaching/practicum. (Click on the Field and Student Teaching/Practicum link located in the left hand menu for more information.)

Two programs within the Deaf and Hard of Hearing program:

Program 1 is designed for prospective students who do not have initial or professional New York State teacher certification in childhood education, grades 1-6. Qualified prospective students do not need to have any prior pedagogical coursework, since the program is essentially a “from scratch” teacher preparation program. Career changers and other prospective students with full-time jobs will find that the required coursework at Hunter is as conveniently structured as a teacher certification program cab be, since our classes are scheduled in the late afternoon and evening. Fieldwork, however, takes place during the school day, and prospective students should be prepared to make some accommodations for these experiences. Students who successfully complete the program will receive certification in DHH, preK-12th grade and certification in childhood education, grades 1-6.

Program 2 is designed for prospective students who have initial, professional or permanent New York State certification as a teacher. Prospective students with full-time jobs will find that the required coursework at Hunter is as conveniently structured as a teacher certification program cab be, since our classes are scheduled in the late afternoon and evening. Fieldwork, however, takes place during the school day, and prospective students should be prepared to make some accommodations for these experiences. Students who successfully complete the program will receive certification in DHH, preK-12th grade.
