​Why Study ASL?

•  Knowing ASL will allow you to communicate with the many deaf or hearing-impaired ASL users in your community.

•  Knowing ASL may also provide you with enhanced career opportunities.


In order to be eligible for a bachelor's degree at a Texas public college or university, you must first complete a Core Curriculum of courses.

When completed at Brookhaven College, the Core Curriculum is guaranteed to transfer as a block to any public university in the state of Texas.

You may take either SGNL 1301 or SGNL 1302 to satisfy the "Tier 1: Speaking and Listening" requirement of the Core Curriculum.

Concurrent (noncredit) enrollment

If you want to take academically-rigorous courses in ASL but do not need college credit for them,  then you might consider taking our credit ASL courses “concurrently,” i.e. for non-credit.
