Minor in American Sign Language

Posted by Tim on January 31, 2022 in Academics, New Programs

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 or
email Andrew Byrne, Director of the ASL Program at

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!
