American Sign Language

Dear UMHB students,

Got bilingual skills? Perchance you might be interested in getting a job that would utilize the fluency of your bilinguality? How about just dabbing into this unique spatial language? Yes, that’s right…there is such language like that.

American Sign Language (ASL) has been recognized as a spatial (visual) language and is regarded to be the third most widely used language in the United States.

ASL is a language embedded in a rich and diverse Deaf community that involves art, drama educational institutions, religious organizations, sports, clubs, and community gatherings of every kind.

University of Mary Hardin-Baylor has the privilege of offering ASL as the students’ choice to meet the foreign language requirement. It can lead to various job opportunities such as interpreting/translator or teacher for the deaf/hard of hearing students.

We’d like to know if you are interested in a minor in ASL. Please e-mail me at Your response will be greatly appreciated.
