American Sign Language Certificate Program

The American Sign Language certificate program provides students with fluency in working with deaf persons. The ASL certificate is a two-year program of study of a second language that prepares students to communicate at a paraprofessional level. The program satisfies the majority of lower division transfer course work by establishing ASL fluency for students planning to transfer to an ASL interpreting program or Deaf Studies program.  It consists of the following classes:

SL 001, SL 002, SL 003, SL 004;

SL 071, SL 072, SL 073, SL 074;

ENG 1A, and COMM ST 007

American Sign Language Labs

These labs are used to support lecture taught in the above classses (SL 001 - 004.)  In these labs you can work individually or in small groups to work on vocabulary and grammar that you learned in your main class.  This is a lab, so there is not outside homework required for this class.  You may take labs for 1 unit or for a 1/2 unit.  Normally the 1/2 unit class is roughly half the hours each week of the 1 unit course.  The hours must be completed during the 1 unit times, but may be flexible for the student.  You are required to take 2 units of labs for completion of the ASL Certificate.  If you have completed your classes, the labs will offer vocabulary expansion opportunities for you as well as grammar practice.

The Labs are offered in Fall, Spring and Summer.  We do have evening lab offered during Fall and Spring.
