Program Pathway

American Sign Language Certificate of Achievement

The American Sign Language (ASL) certificate 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

Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate clear and precise expressive and receptive skills in American Sign Language with appropriate grammatical accuracy.
  2. Demonstrate appropriate cultural awareness.
