The Program in Linguistics announces an expansion of its American Sign Language (ASL) offerings. The proposal to establish a sequence in American Sign Language was approved unanimously by the Faculty Committee on the Course of Study (COCS) on April 13.
Over the coming two years, the program will introduce four new ASL language courses, ASL 101, 102, 105, and 107. This involves a significant restructuring of the current offerings so that this new 100-level sequence can be taken to satisfy the university’s language requirement. In addition, the program will be maintaining the extremely popular LIN 205 as a course that is fully independent of the language sequence, providing an overview of ASL and related topics, as well as introducing a new course on Deaf culture, to be offered for the first time in Spring 2022.
The Daily Princetonian published an article about the sequence. Read it here.
