Integrated Studies - ASL Emphasis, BA/BS
ASL Program Description
Utah Tech University’s American Sign Language emphasis program is unique in southern Utah. In addition to language acquisition classes, students take classes in Deaf Culture. Students learn crucial communication skills such as cultural awareness and sensitivity, register and code switching, and the ability to be lifelong learners. Furthermore, they develop cultural and linguistic knowledge to navigate various social, professional and educational environments as cultural and linguistic liaisons.
PROFESSIONAL LICENSURE/CERTIFICATION (PLC) REQUIREMENTS
The curriculum for programs at Utah Tech University customarily leading to licensure have been designed to meet the educational licensure/certification requirements in Utah as well as to prepare students to apply for licensure exams in the State of Utah. The licensure boards in each state are responsible for establishing the requirements for licensure/certification for their state. Requirement may vary state to state and may change at any time. Students who intend to use their Utah Tech degree to secure licensure in any state other than Utah will need to review the professional licensure disclosures in that state pertaining to their program and consult with the state professional licensing board. For more information, visit the State Authorization and Professional Licensure web page and select your program, or speak to the director of your program.
