American Sign Language (ASL) Studies, Minor
The minor in American Sign Language teaches communication competency in a visual language. Students become knowledgeable about aspects of the Deaf and hard-of-hearing community. For careers working with the public, this minor is beneficial for understanding and communicating with Deaf and hard-of-hearing people. This minor does not prepare students to interpret, nor fulfill the pre-admission and admission process for the ASL and English Interpretation Program.
A grade of “C” or higher is required in each course while maintaining a 2.75 GPA or higher in the minor.
