ASL 102: American Sign Language II

5 Cr
Quarters: W, S
The course will develop the language skills necessary for functional proficiency and creative use of American Sign Language. Using a communicative, interactive, and task-based approach, the student will explore the language, people, and culture of the Deaf. This course will enable the students to participate in conversations of greater length and use memorized material to combine phrases and sentences. Additional vocabulary, sign formation, and grammatical structures will be covered. The emphasis, however, will be on active expressive and receptive communication in ASL.
Prerequisite: ASL 101  with a grade of C or better or proven proficiency at that level.
