About the courseFor students considering a major, the American Sign Language (ASL) program presents ASL as a culture- and community-based language that interacts with other world languages. Through techniques including immersion and bilingual-bicultural comparison classes, community interaction, research, lab activities and use of digital video technology, students gain documented proficiency in ASL, validity within the deaf community, and networking within the professional community. Students interested in declaring the B.A. in American Sign Language should contact the Department of Modern and Classical Language Studies, where advising is mandatory. Students interested in teacher licensure must contact the departmental pedagogy coordinator for advising to complete the required education minor. Students pursuing teacher licensure must satisfactorily pass the Sign Communication Proficiency Interview before taking Student Teaching. Any portion of the 14-hour basic course sequence may be waived by demonstrated proficiency, however, under no circumstances may the coursework taken toward the major drop below 30 credit hours.
