Sign Language

In these courses, you will be introduced to the vital role of American Sign Language (ASL) in the lives of the deaf as you progressively acquire expressive and receptive sign communication skills. You will learn about vocabulary, grammar, language function in ASL, and how to sign the manual English alphabet. You will also explore the sociological aspects of deafness and hearing loss, the similarities and differences between ASL and English, and the subculture that exists among the hearing impaired.
