Requirements for a Minor in “American Sign Language”
Our ASL minor is designed to provide an opportunity for students to work toward linguistic competency in ASL, a skill set that can be applied to careers in education, health, recreational services, speech-language pathology, interpreting, and more. While working toward linguistic competency students will also explore the literature, history, and culture of America’s Deaf community and its influence on the larger global Deaf community. Students who have an interest in linguistics, language, culture, missions, and social justice issues will find this minor appealing.
Students wishing to transfer in ASL are to take the CSD departmental ASL placement exam if their college is not listed on the course equivalency list for Baylor University.
