Used by parents, professionals, athletes, public speakers, and others in various industries, American Sign Language (ASL) is one of the most popular language classes in colleges and universities. Learning ASL offers several benefits and marketable skills – from making you a better communicator to improving abstract thinking and hand/eye coordination.
As a full-credit elective, the course also counts as a world language credit for high school students. Explore cool features found in our new American Sign Language course below!

Ways to Explore Deaf Culture
Students study how language reflects characteristics of culture.
Since culture and language are intertwined, ASL students explore connections and make comparisons within the greater sign language community – while also developing skills in interpersonal, presentational, and interpretive communication. Because ASL is a visual/gestural language that has no vocal component, students will use video communication to complete discussion-based assessments (DBAs) with teachers.
Interested in learning ASL online? Enroll in the American Signage Language 1 course today for a start date as early as August 2019.
