Pursue a degree or take courses in American Sign Language (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.
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.
