ASL as Second Language

Some degree programs require a demonstration of proficiency in a second language. American Sign Language is considered a second language and can count toward your degree’s requirements. Please contact your program’s advisor to learn about your degree’s requirements.

If you studied a second language in high school or another college or university, or if you have prior knowledge of a second language, you should take a placement exam before enrolling in a language course at UA Little Rock. Please contact Dr. Meagan Beaty, Interpreter Education program coordinator, to learn more about ASL courses.
