Deaf Communication Studies: American Sign Language, Certificate of Specialization
Florissant Valley and Wildwood
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 American mainstream culture.
Students in this program will learn to converse in American Sign Language, accurately expressing their own thoughts and accurately comprehending the thoughts of other signers on everyday topics.
These entry-level language courses are open to all members of the Deaf and non-Deaf communities.
