Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Major

Welcome to Augustana’s Education of the

Deaf & Hard of Hearing Program! 

Augustana’s professors were (and still are) supportive, encouraging and always challenging  They have working knowledge in the field and prepare us for so many “what if’s” that books can't always do.
