American Sign Language Certificate (Owens Code: ZASL)

The American Sign Language (ASL) Certificate will provide a solid foundation in ASL for students in the health care, education, public service and business fields.

Employers in health care, engineering, social services and business fields steadily broaden their search for employees who can interact in another language because knowing another language increases one’s ability to communicate and understand one’s own language better, as noted by the 2017 report Not Lost in Translation: The Growing Importance of Foreign Language Skills in the U.S. Job Market.
