Electives Applicable Toward a Minor in American Sign Language
Classes from the following list may be used to satisfy the elective requirement for the American Sign Language minor.

Not all of the classes listed here are offered every year. Check with the department that offers the class to find out how often it is taught. Note that some of these classes have prerequisites, which may or may not be applicable to the American Sign Language minor.

If you are interested in a particular topic for which there is no course offering, consider enrolling in Independent Study (ASL 499) for 1-3 credits per quarter to pursue your interest. You would need to find a faculty member to supervise your independent study.
