ASL 101 - American Sign Language 1

3 credits

American Sign Language 1 introduces the student to visual-gestural and conceptual skills that provide a means of communication with deaf people in the context of the deaf culture and allow them to establish a basic means of communication with non-verbal individuals. At the completion of the course, the student will be able to recognize important linguistic and cultural variations among different groups within the culture, and will be able to carry on basic informal, interactive, face-to-face conversation with a native ASL user.

Notes: LIN or ANTHR 201: Introduction to Linguistics is a recommended pre-course for American sign Language 1.
