 The Associate of Arts degree program in American Sign Language    is designed for students who plan to enter fields in which they would work with Deaf people on a daily basis.  Following program completion, students would transfer to a four-year degree program majoring in Deaf Education, Interpreter Education, or Social Work.

The Certificate program in American Sign Language   is designed to provide students with a foundation in ASL and would benefit those pursuing business or other service-oriented fields where they might be called upon to communicate directly with Deaf clients.  The program also serves students preparing to enter an Interpreter Training Program, students whose first language is ASL and who desire to learn the structure and syntax of the language, and students desiring to improve their understanding of Deaf culture to better communicate with Deaf family, friends, neighbors, and community.
