American Sign Language

Purpose: An American Sign Language (ASL) Letter of Recognition provides a basic foundation of ASL and an appreciation of Deaf history and culture or an understanding of ASL interpretation. This makes it possible for learners in any area of study to serve the Deaf and Hard of Hearing population. These courses integrate basic ASL conversations adhering to ASL linguistic structures and cultural norms with introductory history and culture of the American Deaf community or the theoretical processes and ethics of interpreting. Note: This letter of recognition does not qualify recipients as interpreters.
