Program Description

Growth in the interpreting field continues at an undaunted pace with endless career possibilities. If you picture yourself working in a career that uses American Sign Language, then this degree program will be of interest to you. The A.S. degree in American Sign Language is designed to provide students with a broad educational experience, which includes the balance and diversity of general education and the knowledge and skills of American Sign Language and the Deaf community.

While this program is designed for those students seeking successful transfer to a 4-year ASL-English Interpreting institution, it also lends itself to students seeking to supplement another degree at Onondaga so they may integrate with their foundation of American Sign Language and the Deaf community to their primary academic area of study. If you are already employed in the interpreting field, this degree will sharpen your skills and advance your career.
