Update on ASL As a Foreign Language

The SES Department and the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures (College of Arts & Sciences) are delighted to announce that they are collaborating to continue offering courses in American Sign Language for non-majors.  Both departments just received word that they have been granted permission to offer American Sign Language out of the department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures by cross-listing a new course prefix of ASL with the SES American Sign Language sequence. This change will not have any impact on current American Sign Language courses offered for Professions in Deafness majors. The ASL/Deaf Studies minor has not been discontinued, and both departments are involved in ongoing conversations to determine if they might be able to offer this popular minor through the LLC Department.
