Certificate in American Sign Language

The certificate is designed to educate students in American Sign Language (ASL), Deaf culture, and the history of the Deaf community. It also will help students gain a broad understanding of the scope and types of support services that are available to Deaf and hard-of-hearing persons. Additionally, there are career opportunities that the ability to use ASL supports, such as being an instruction aide for Deaf students or a dorm counselor at a Deaf school. This certificate does not qualify you as a sign language interpreter. Students wishing to continue their studies in ASL and/or ASL Interpreter Preparation should consult with an ASL and Interpreter Preparation advisor.
