Major Details

American Sign Language (ASL) Studies B.A.

*Bachelor of Arts degree programs require a minor and a year of a foreign language.

Students must earn a grade of ‘C’ or better to continue on in their sequence of majors courses. If a student does not receive a grade of ‘C’ or better, they will be invited to repeat the course. The curriculum is designed for classes to layer information and skill, thus lack of skill development in a prerequisite course will not lead to success in future work. For example: If a student receives a ‘C’ in ASL II they may go on to ASL III. If a student receives a ‘D’ in ASL II, they will be invited to repeat the course until they earn a grade of ‘C’ or better.
