    American Sign Language (ASL) is the first language of many deaf people in the United States and Canada. It is a visual, gesture-based language used by ASL interpreters that employs signs made with the hands, facial expressions, and body posture and movements to communicate.

    Degree programs in American Sign Language teach the vocabulary, grammar, punctuation, word/sentence order, and intonation of ASL – conveyed by hand shape, palm orientation, hand movement, hand location, and gestures. Programs also expose students to the culture of the Deaf community.
