​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Program Description

With a minor in American Sign Language you will acquire conversational skills in American Sign Language and develop an appreciation and understanding of the way in which people in the Deaf community live, think and communicate. The ASL minor is designed to expand your language skills and cultural knowledge to enhance majors such as linguistics, communication disorders (speech-language pathology and audiology), journalism, business, education, theater, social work, psychology, health sciences or other areas of study.
