This certificate provides greater opportunities for students who wish to communicate in ASL in their chosen career. Note, these students are not qualified to interpret, nor does this certificate make the student an expert in the field of American Sign Language or Deaf Studies. A CSD Professional Deaf Resources Liaison Certificate may be used as a related field in BA degrees (i.e. Communication Studies and Bachelor of Specialized Studies).
