By completing the ASL Minor, you will develop your communicative and cultural competence
of American Sign Language and the Deaf community.
- ASL 101: American Sign Language I**
- ASL 102: American Sign Language II**
- ASL 201: American Sign Language III
- ASL 202: American Sign Language IV
- INTR 101: American Sign Language V
- INTR 102: American Sign Language VI
Upper Division Courses (select 2):
- INTR 312: Intercultural Communication
- ASL 310: Deaf Culture & Community
- EDSE 550: Foundations of Deaf Education
*NOTE: ASL I-VI are sequential courses, and thus, each course builds upon the previous course.
Therefore, ASL I-VI must be completed in order and not simultaneously with another
ASL I-VI course. The upper division courses can be completed in any order after you
have completed ASL IV. You can take an upper division course simultaneously with ASL
V and ASL VI.
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 these courses are more than one (1) year ago,
it is recommended that you take the ASL I-IV screening to make certain that you are
placed in an appropriate level ASL course.
If you've taken ASL in high school or have life experiences, you would request a screening for placement into the appropriate ASL course from
Kate.Beilmann@unco.edu. This screening has a $25 fee.
