American Sign Language
This certificate will focus on American Sign Language vocabulary, syntax, non-manual aspects, expressive and receptive signing skills, and deaf culture. Prospective students would include parents of Deaf children, and people who plan to work in Deaf-related fields, such as social work, vocational rehabilitation, Deaf education, sign language interpreting, etc. This program would also be for office and clerical personnel who want to make their businesses more “Deaf-friendly.” This program will prepare students for further study in the field, or the interpreting certification process between spoken English users and ASL users. Candidates for admission to this program should be proficient in English.
Gainful Employment Information
The US Department of Education requires colleges to disclose a variety of information for any financial aid eligible program that “prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation.” The information provided here is the best available to us. We hope that this information is helpful to our current students and to prospective students as they make their career and educational choices
