Deaf Education Program Suspension

The School of Education has made the decision to suspend admission to the Deaf Education program for Fall 2017. They will be reassessing the program and will be making a decision by the fall semester on whether or not they will open admission back up for the Fall 2018 semester. When updates are made, we will reflect them on this page.

Canisius does offer initial certification programs in Adolescence, Childhood, and Special Education. These programs would prepare you to become a New York State certified teacher in either Grades 1 – 6, 7 – 12, or Special Education.
