Graduate Certificate in Advanced American Sign Language

The Advanced American Sign Language certificate is designed for students who are looking to enter ASL and/or ASL interpreting fields. Alternatively, this certificate could serve students who are sufficiently proficient and fluent in both American Sign Language and English to pass a language proficiency entrance exam. These individuals in this latter category may be Deaf or hearing heritage ASL users. This certificate moves students from basic ASL to ASL proficiency. This certificate may also benefit working interpreters or educators working with the Deaf community, who have basic knowledge of ASL, but would like to improve their skills.
