Deaf Education and Hearing Science


Welcome to The Master of Deaf Education and Hearing Science (MDEHS) Program at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio , nationally certified by the Council on Education of the Deaf. This program is one of only a handful in the country that provides intensive training in how to help children with hearing loss develop spoken language through the use of residual hearing, high-powered hearing aids and cochlear implants.


Certified teachers for children with hearing loss are in high demand. Every year positions across the nation go unfilled because of the lack of qualified professionals. If you have an interest in children, language and communication, and a bachelor’s degree in education or a related field already, the Master of Deaf Education and Hearing Science could be the next step in your career. Full tuition scholarships and learning stipends are available.
