Students who study ASL will find increased employability in a range of professions. Deaf Studies provides students with a historical, cultural, and linguistic foundation. From this foundation students are prepared to become certified interpreters, to become ASL and Deaf studies teachers, to pursue graduate work in deaf education and a variety of other disciplines, and to engage in any number of professional fields related to deafness.
