Deaf Studies, Minor

In the Deaf Studies minor, students will examine elements of what culturally-Deaf people in America have traditionally called "the Deaf-World" with special attention to the framework of meaning from within which culturally-Deaf people interpret what it means to be Deaf. This minor challenges students to approach cultural descriptions critically, and provides a historical, cultural, and linguistic foundation.
