ASL clusters are available in the humanities and the social sciences.

Why Study ASL?

At Rochester, we approach the study of ASL from cultural, linguistic, and scientific perspectives. Studying ASL prepares you for entering a variety of professions, including counseling, interpreting, research, education, and health care.

The Deaf Community

Because the city of Rochester has a large Deaf population, our students can learn and use ASL outside the classroom at community events and lectures, theatrical performances, and more.
