American Sign Language breaks down barriers 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.

How will this enhance my life or career?

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. When you become fluent in ASL you could:

  • Give your business or current job added value, especially if it’s required by law, according to the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Help your baby communicate their needs long before they are ready to speak
  • Find a job you really love such as an audiologist, interpreter, social worker, teacher or counselor
  • Be a volunteer and help others in your church, community or fine arts venues

Courses offered may include:

  • ABC, 123 & Finger Spelling
  • Sign Language I
  • Sign Language II
  • Sign Language III
