American Sign Language

American Sign Language (ASL) is one of the most widely used languages in the United States: there are approximately 250,000 – 500,000 ASL users in the US and Canada, most of whom use ASL as their primary language. Being proficient in ASL allows you to communicate with a wide range of hearing, hard of hearing, and deaf individuals, from students to business people, and their families and community. 

At Kennesaw State University, we offer courses in introductory-level American Sign Language that go beyond the fundamentals of fingerspelling. You also learn how to use the language in everyday situations, and how even a basic knowledge of the language can enrich other fields of study. Our coursework includes reflections about intercultural experiences and self-assessment to build your critical thinking skills.
