American Sign Language

American Sign Language

The ASL program prepares students for entry-level employment as translators or interpreting, and to pursue degrees in ASL and Deaf Studies. ASL is a non-verbal, highly visual, language course.

Employment Opportunities in ASL

ASL is in high demand, not only in response to the Americans with Disabilities Act, but also due to the growth in the Deaf community in the US. ASL interpreters and translators are in high demand in education, the court system, hospitals, social work, law enforcement, the medical and health professions, business, customer service, and many other careers where contact with the Deaf community is a must.

Virginia Mendez

Virginia Mendez
Culinology Student

"Discovering the culinology program was an amazing experience. The professors are great and the classes have taught me everything I need to know about nutrition and food science. I really found my calling in the baking class and realized that is where my passion is. Now, I want to open my own pastry shop because of my experience at Allan Hancock College."
