The minor in American Sign Language (ASL) provides students with a foundation for the development of their expressive and receptive skills applicable to the professional and/or educational setting and in the
understanding of Deaf Culture, Deaf Identity, and Diversity. Students minoring in ASL will have the opportunity to develop a cross-cultural understanding of the rich, cultural heritage of the Deaf community
including literature, the performing arts, and the educational political aspects surrounding the community. The identified SLS courses (SLS 201  and SLS 202 ) required for this minor will also count towards the
general education language requirement at Flagler College. The minor in ASL is open to all students at Flagler College.

Note that there are separate requirements for students majoring in Deaf Education (EDDEL).

Students who are majoring in Deaf Education must complete 21 credit hours including 12 hours of required courses and 9 hours of elective courses. (Note: EDD 349  and EDD 448/548  are already required as part of the degree plan in Deaf Education and EDDEL majors would only need to add one additional course to satisfy the requirements of this minor).

Students in all other majors must complete 15 credit hours including 12 hours of required courses and 3 hours of elective courses.  The current course offerings are as follows:
