American Sign Language

ASL 101: Elementary American Sign Language I

This course introduces students to the basics of American Sign Language (ASL) and to Deaf culture. This immersive course, conducted nearly entirely without speaking, encourages students to reconsider our typical, privileged conception of language as a form of communication driven by speaking and hearing. This course is designed for students with little to no experience in ASL.

ASL 102: Elementary American Sign Language II

A continuation of ASL 101, ASL 102 extends students' exposure to American Sign Language (ASL) and to Deaf Culture. This immersive course, conducted entirely without speaking, builds on the skills students acquire in ASL 101, or the equivalent.
