ASL Courses

You can learn American Sign Language to meet your personal and career goals. ASL courses will develop your conversational fluency in ASL and increase your knowledge of Deaf Culture. The on-campus ASL courses offers a traditional learning environment on UNC's campus in Greeley, CO. You will meet face-to-face with other ASL students and faculty on consistent days and times throughout each semester. The online ASL courses offer you ASL III & IV through Extended Campus learning with students across the country and with nationally recognized faculty. 

ASL I, II, III, & IV are offered on campus during the fall and spring semesters.

ASL III & IV are offered online during the fall, spring, and summer semesters.

  • Courses

    By completing ASL courses, you will develop your communicative and cultural competence of American Sign Language and the Deaf community.

    ASL Courses:

    • ASL 101: American Sign Language I on-campus
    • ASL 102: American Sign Language II on-campus
    • ASL 201: American Sign Language III on-campus or online
    • ASL 202: American Sign Language IV on-campus or online

    NOTE: ASL I-IV are sequential courses, and thus, each course builds upon the previous course. Therefore, ASL I-IV must be completed in order and not simultaneously with another ASL I-IV course.

    Course Descriptions for ASL Courses

    Your placement within the sequential ASL courses depends on your background:

    If you have no prior experience with ASL, you would start at ASL I.

    If you have taken ASL courses at another college or university and the courses are on your transcript(s), you would start at the next level.

    If you've taken ASL in high school or have life experiences, you may qualify for retro-credit, please request a screening for placement into the appropriate ASL course from Dr. Greta Knigga-Daugherty at M.KniggaDaugherty@unco.edu.
