The Sign Language Communicator Certificate is appropriate for students seeking foreign language credit or for those who wish to use American Sign Language conversationally.
The Basic American Sign Language Acquisition Certificate provides basic communication skills in American Sign Language and can be used as foreign language transfer.
The Associate of Applied Science Degree prepares students to take the basic level exam offered by the Board of Evaluators for Interpreters in the state of Texas. In addition to the courses required for a certificate, students take advanced courses and complete a required practicum.
