3 Cr. Hrs.
Common Learning Outcomes
[CD] 15. Intercultural and diversity awareness and understanding

The first half of the elementary level in American Sign Language, this course introduces students to both the culture of the Deaf and the processes/basic structure of ASL to provide a basic understanding of and ability to use the language.  In addition, the course provides a survey of various issues raised by examining ASL in the context of the Deaf community.  During this course students will have a minimum of five hours of additional ASL practice in a laboratory and/or hearing impaired setting.  This course has preferential seating for students in the special education major.  Open seats are filled with students from other majors at the conclusion of the preregistration period on a first-come, first-served basis.
