ASL 203 Advanced American Sign Language I (3 credits)

This intermediate-high level course is a sequel to American Sign Language IV (ASL 202). It expands upon complex grammatical and lexical structures for improved communication. This course gives emphasis to semantics and focuses on various structures of ASL discourse. Students will continue to learn and use vocabulary, fingerspelling, numbers, and grammatical features of ASL. It is conducted entirely in ASL and provides a solid foundation for advanced study. This course also fulfills the Global Awareness requirement at Onondaga. Prerequisite: ASL 202 or permission of instructor.
