Department of Audiology, Speech-Language Pathology and Deaf Studies
Combined Major in Deaf Studies and Elementary Education
Students wanting to combine a major in Deaf Studies (DFST) with a major in Elementary Education (ELED) must separately declare the major with each department. Because the requirements of the ELED major are relatively fixed, students are encouraged to make the decision to complete the combined DFST-ELED major in the freshman year.
Students who enter this major after the freshman year will
not be able to graduate on time. This combined degree program will take 9 semesters to complete. The Elementary Education major is divided into a pre-professional program and professional education courses. Students must separately apply for acceptance into the professional education courses. Refer to the Elementary Education major information listed in the Towson University catalog for more information.
DFST 101, 210 308, 311, and 304 must be completed before
entering the Professional Education Courses in Term 6. The
department cannot accommodate scheduling DFST
courses for students in Professional Education Level I or
higher with the exception of DFST 345, 410 and 435.
