Certificate in Conversational ASL

The Certificate in Conversational American Sign Language will be awarded to students who first complete the 12-unit program of study consisting of CDDS 94S, 106, 136, and 139. Students must then pass the departmental proficiency interview in American Sign Language. The departmental exam is offered at the end of the semester each spring. Students can contact Annette Klein to sign up for the proficiency interview.

Students who are majoring in other disciplines can complete the certificate that will enable them to become more marketable. The recipients of the certificate are considered fluent and possess the expressive and receptive communication skills needed to successfully communicate with deaf and hard-of-hearing children, youth, and adults.

(CDDS 136 has a prerequisite of CSD 91, 92, 93, 94S)
