Deaf Education Teacher Preparation Mission Statement
TWU’s Deaf Education Teacher Preparation Program prepares diverse teachers of the Deaf in response to current needs in the field. Graduate students are educated with practice-based coursework focusing on communication, language and content information for students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing. We seek to prepare highly-qualified practitioners in the field of deaf education nationwide by equipping future teachers with broad knowledge and skills for promoting strong social, linguistic, and academic outcomes among students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing.
Texas Woman's University has the longest-standing program for preparing teachers of the deaf in Texas. Training teachers of students who are Deaf / Hard of Hearing since 1950, and online since 2005, the program prepares teachers to work with total communication, oral / aural, and bilingual educational programs nationally.
The master's degree program in Speech Language Pathology is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and prepares students to apply for Texas licensure as a Speech-Language Pathologist and the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology.
