Deaf Communication Studies: American Sign Language, Certificate of Specialization
The foundation of the curriculum is American Sign Language (ASL), which is the native, indigenous language of the North American deaf community. We recognize the deaf community as a linguistic and cultural minority that functions distinctly from the American mainstream culture.
Students in this program will learn to recognize and adapt to the variations in language that exist within the deaf and non-deaf communities. Students learn to create equivalency in meaning between English and ASL.
These entry-level language courses are open to all members of the deaf and non-deaf community.
