CERTIFICATE OF TECHNICAL STUDIES PROGRAM
The American Sign Language Studies certificate program is designed to provide the student with a foundation in American Sign Language. The goal of the certificate program is to provide basic communication skills for teachers, social workers, audiologists, nurses, police officers, and others whose professions bring them into contact with the Deaf and hard of hearing individuals. Employees with sign language skills are increasingly in demand as business and industry accommodate requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Students planning to pursue a baccalaureate program should contact that receiving institution for determination of course transferability. A listing of Delgado courses can be found at Delgado Community College’s web site at http://www.dcc.edu/transfer/courselist.pdf
