The American Sign Language (ASL) certificate program provides students with fluency in working with deaf persons. The ASL certificate is a two-year program of study of a second language that prepares students to communicate at a paraprofessional level. The program satisfies the majority of lower division transfer course work by establishing ASL fluency for students planning to transfer to an ASL interpreting program or Deaf Studies program.
Program Learning Outcomes
Program completers will demonstrate clear and precise expressive and receptive skills in Sign Language with appropriate grammatical accuracy and cultural awareness.
