The NTID Department of Liberal Studies (DLS) provides opportunities for all students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing to reach their academic potential and become responsible, global citizens and life-long learners. Faculty meet the needs of students through a variety of communication strategies in direct instruction as well as offering a unique approach to educating deaf and hard-of-hearing students in RIT’s College of Liberal Arts (CLA). Instruction is provided in reading, writing and critical thinking, and DLS faculty partner with their CLA colleagues to teach, tutor and advise students in courses and programs in the various departments of the College of Liberal Arts.
