Experiential learning integrates the classroom and the real world. Our programs engage students with the world through professional work in the community.
We know nothing enhances learning as much as hands-on experience. Throughout your time in the American Sign Language & Interpreting Program, you’ll apply new skills across a range of contexts, from the classroom to your community.
CO-OP In the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, cooperative education—or co-op for short—is a key component to the Experiential Liberal Arts, an educational model that integrates experiential learning with the rigorous study of society, culture, and politics. Students in the American Sign Language Program often decide to participate in the co-op program in order to refine their signing communication skills and to work alongside Deaf people. In the past our students have co-oped at schools for Deaf students, service agencies run for and by the Deaf Community, and even with an organization creating Deaf televised media. Students who complete an ASL co-op typically enhance their signing skills, develop a working understanding of communication technologies used in the Deaf Community and learn how to behave and interact professionally with Deaf colleagues.Co-op American Sign Language
