American Sign Language Associate in Arts Degree
And Certificate of Completion

Vista’s American Sign Language Program is a model for colleges and universities throughout the United States and in Canada. It focuses on understanding Deaf culture, development of communication skills, grammar, and how cultural differences between the Deaf and hearing communities effect cross-cultural communication. Most importantly, it provides students with tools to continue learning the language in the community.
