Hofstra University Continuing Education

ASL American Sign Language / Deaf Studies Certificate Program

Hofstra’s American Sign Language (ASL)/Deaf Studies Certificate Program Program is a 200-hour program composed of a sequence of noncredit courses that leads to a clear level of competence in American Sign Language. The certificate is awarded to students who successfully complete all required courses plus eight (8) workshops of the student’s choice. The courses and workshops in this program are continually updated and rotated in the summer, spring and fall. Affiliated instructors are members of both the hearing and deaf communities. Those who complete the certificate program may choose to pursue further studies in an interpreter program.

Courses may be taken on an individual basis without participating in the certificate program.

Transfer Students: Students with advanced standing may substitute courses taken at other institutions, and these course hours will be accepted at Hofstra. All transfer students must be evaluated to determine ASL proficiency and remaining courses required in the certificate program. Please call 516-463-4803 to make an appointment.

Payment plans are available for students in the certificate program and students taking classes individually.
Email Kathleen.A.Montalbano@hofstra.edu for payment plan information.

Note: Hofstra University Continuing Education reserves the right to reschedule courses and reassign faculty.
