Deaf Studies Prep
Program Goals Statement
This certificate program is designed for students interested in American Sign Language and the lives of Deaf people. It is a great collection of gateway Deaf Studies courses for students in non-Deaf Studies degree programs that seek specialized skills and knowledge in a competitive job market. It is also an effective way to decide if Deaf Studies is a major one wants to pursue. This certificate does not lead to employment.
- This certificate program is a good choice for Deaf Studies students wishing to explore their program of study and career options while they complete developmental work.
- Students are encouraged to be active in our ASL/Deaf Studies club and are required to be active in the Deaf community.
- Students will spend an additional hour per week engaged in language lab activities with each ASL course taken.
