American Sign Language Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

A minor in American Sign Language (ASL) enables students to develop the necessary knowledge of the cultural norms, values, and traditions within the Deaf community, as well as the ability to use ASL in a one-on-one setting at a conversational level. Students will be aware of the pathological perspective of deafness that is typically held by the dominant American hearing culture and the Deaf cultural perspective; they will possess the ability to navigate between both. An off-campus immersion experience (offered every other year - additional costs apply) is required to complete the American Sign Language minor.
