American Sign Language

American Sign Language

The ASL program prepares students for entry-level employment as translators or interpreting, and to pursue degrees in ASL and Deaf Studies. ASL is a non-verbal, highly visual, language course.

Employment Opportunities in ASL

ASL is in high demand, not only in response to the Americans with Disabilities Act, but also due to the growth in the Deaf community in the US. ASL interpreters and translators are in high demand in education, the court system, hospitals, social work, law enforcement, the medical and health professions, business, customer service, and many other careers where contact with the Deaf community is a must.

Yazmin Perez
Administration of Justice Student

"I came to Allan Hancock College with no plan or goal. The friendly staff here helped me see all the opportunities that are available and helped me shape my goals. The administration of justice program inspired me to look at jobs I never thought I would find. My goal now is to transfer to a four-year university."
