A minor in American Sign Language (ASL) is a very useful complement to majors at the University at Buffalo such as Communication, Health and Human Services, Law, Nursing, Occupational Science/Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Psychology, Public Health, Sociology, Speech and Hearing Science, and Theatre. The ASL minor allows you to develop your language proficiency and knowledge of ASL culture, while also concentrating on other fields of study. For more information, please go to https://catalog.buffalo.edu/academicprograms/american_sign_language_minor.html or email Andrew Byrne, Director of the ASL Program at email@example.com.
Frequently Asked Questions • By taking ASL 101 and 102, you can fulfill the Language and Culture track for the Global Pathways component of the UB Curriculum. • ASL 101 and 102 are usually offered during summer sessions. • You can take ASL 211 any time during the minor period. • The ASL minor does not lead to certification to be an ASL-English interpreter. However, the ASL program helps prepare you for the admission of an ASL-English interpreting program in the U.S. • A grade of 72% (C) or better is required in all ASL courses taken toward the minor. • Placement assessment is available – start at the ASL language class that is right for you!
We are excited to inform you about Columbia Neuroscience Access (CAN), a new program hosted by Columbia University in the City of New York to increase participation of students from underrepresented groups in Neuroscience research. This two-day (virtual) program offers highly motivated candidates’ information on subjects including how to compose a competitive application, how to navigate graduate school interviews and about life as a PhD student, as well as talks about the latest neuroscience research. Participating CAN students will also be able to network with faculty and students and will have the option of enrolling in the CAN-buddy program to receive continued guidance on how to improve their graduate school candidacy, including preparing their application package.

Students who have not completed all pre-requisite courses prior to submitting their application will still be considered for the program as long as no more than 2 pre-requisite courses are outstanding prior to the application deadline. Pre-requisites may be completed at most any regionally accredited 2- or 4-year institution. Basic science prerequisites must be taken within the past 10 years and nutrition courses must be taken within the past five years. The program no longer requires GRE scores.
