ASL Minor

Minor in American Sign Language

American Sign Language (ASL) provides a unique modality-visual and gestural rather than the traditional aural/oral approach to modern language teaching. ASL is a fully developed language, containing rich verbal aspects and a classifier system. Elements of deaf culture are also presented through theoretical and applied simulations.
