The master of science degree in secondary education of students who are deaf or hard of hearing prepares students to meet the national need for teachers of secondary students who are deaf or hard of hearing. The program prepares teachers not only as effective and ethical practitioners but also as scholars and leaders in the profession.

Faculty members are international leaders in research and are highly skilled in the education of deaf people. A carefully designed system of faculty advisement is a prominent feature of the program. On-campus facilities, state-of-the-art technology, and a well-established system of educational access services combine to make this a vital program for both deaf and hearing students who desire careers as professional educators of deaf students.

Plan of study

Course work requires a minimum of four semesters. A cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 must be maintained. Before graduation, students are expected to have at least intermediate-level signing skills as determined by a Sign Language Proficiency Interview.

Admission requirements

To be considered for admission to the MS program in secondary education of students who are deaf or hard of hearing, candidates must fulfill the following requirements:

- Hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university,

- Have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher,

- Submit official transcripts (in English) of all previously completed undergraduate and graduate course work,

- Have a basic knowledge of American Sign Language as measured by a departmental skill assessment, or willingness to take American Sign Language I (or its equivalent) at NTID or another college prior to beginning the program,

- Have a level of writing proficiency appropriate to graduate study as indicated by a review of undergraduate writing-intensive courses and an expository essay,

- Submit letters of reference and an expository essay that indicates evidence of professional commitment and potential for success in the program,

Students who do not have the required number of hours must complete the additional credits before applying for New York State certification.

Please note: The social studies content area includes economics and government, and at least 21 semester hours in the history and geography of the United States and the world.

Additional information

- Financial Aid

NTID graduate tuition rates are less than one-half of RIT’s tuition.

Students complete only the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply for financial aid. Students enrolled in this program may be eligible for grant funding from the U.S. Department of Education. In addition, federal loan programs may be available.

M.S. in Mathematics for Secondary School Teachers

A high school teacher with an advanced knowledge of mathematics can make a profound impact on his or her students. A sophisticated understanding of mathematical concepts and problem-solving strategies can help bring high school-level math vividly to life for the adolescent student.

The M.S. in Mathematics for Secondary School Teachers is designed for people who are currently working as teachers or those who plan to enter the teaching field. This program makes the mathematics teacher more versatile and valuable to his or her school district.
The 37-credit Master of Science program consists of 25 credits of required courses covering such subjects as set theory, mathematical logic and information, abstract algebra, Euclidean geometry, history of mathematics and the foundations and applications of analysis. It also offers the opportunity to satisfy individual interests by requiring 12 credits of electives. As a capstone project, students either write a thesis or prepare a lecture on mathematics suitable for high school students.
