Whether you want to converse more effectively with a deaf friend, meet foreign language requirements or become a sign language interpreter, FRCC offers many opportunities to learn ASL (levels 1-6). This includes instruction in Deaf culture, ASL linguistics, discourse analysis and aspects of interpreting.

Supporting a Variety of Goals

Our versatile programming allows you to take what you learn and use it on the path you choose:

  • Use ASL in the world around you. Learn more about American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf culture to better communicate with deaf friends, family and coworkers.
  • Language credits transfer. Take ASL levels 1-3 to satisfy foreign language requirements when transitioning to a four-year college or university.
  • Earn an associate degree. Go on to earn a general associate degree, completing a significant amount of specialized coursework in ASL. This transfers to many four-year colleges and universities to satisfy general education requirements for a four-year degree.
  • Become a sign language interpreter. Prepare to transfer to a sign language interpreting program, including University of Northern Colorado's bachelor degree program in ASL-English Interpreting (ASLEI).
