The Advanced Studies in Deaf Education master of arts program is designed specifically for teachers of deaf and hard of hearing students who have state licensure in deaf education or provisional CED certification (or the equivalent) and who are currently working in the field. The program is designed to provide recent graduates of deaf education teacher preparation programs and experienced teachers the opportunity to acquire more in-depth knowledge in the specific concentration area of their choice.

The program offers two delivery options. The on-campus program is a self-paced, individualized degree program. The online program follows an existing plan of study in one of two specializations: Educating Students with Disabilities or ASL/English Bilingual Early Childhood Education.

The masters in deaf education advanced studies program is not intended to lead to licensure and does not lead to licensure in Washington, D.C. Gallaudet University has also determined that the program also does not meet professional licensure requirements in all 50 states and U.S. territories.
