American Sign Language - English Interpreter Preparation Program (AEIP)

Sign Language

American Sign Language breaks the sound barrier between deaf and hearing people. As accessibility demands increase, the use of ASL is growing – and so is the study of ASL among hearing students.


American Sign Language (ASL) is the predominant language of deaf people in the United States, Canada and much of the rest of the Americas. Learning to speak with your hands gives you the ability to communicate clearly with deaf or hard-of-hearing people. (It is also useful in situations where speech is difficult, such as in a noisy room or across a large space.)

Expand your language skills by learning the manual alphabet, numbers and some of the most commonly used signs in ASL. You will also learn about the culture and community of deaf Americans.
