TERRE HAUTE — Starting January 2020, Indiana State University will be offering a new teacher licensure program to train educators to work with students who are deaf or hard of hearing.

According to the Tribune-Star, the Deaf/Hard of Hearing program will take two years to complete and will be offered through the university's College of Education.

According to the Council for Education of the Deaf, there is a national crisis in Deaf education due to a significant shortage of qualified teachers.

The license program s scheduled to begin next month.
