Want to learn ASL?
The first four ASL classes are the place to start for non-native ASL students. The course sequence (ASL-A 131, ASL-A 132, ASL-A 211, and ASL-A 212) will help prepare you for basic ASL communication, and will also get you on the road to complete the Minor, or, combined with other coursework, to apply for the Interpreting Major or Certificate. If you have not studied ASL before, start with ASL-A 131. If you have experience with ASL or are a transfer student, you’ll start by taking a placement test. The placement test is required of all transfer students and students with ASL skills who have not previously taken an ASL class at IUPUI. Please contact Vera Masters for more information on the placement test. Native speakers of ASL may not take any of these first four courses.
Want to become an interpreter?
There is a great need for highly qualified interpreters in the Indianapolis area and the world beyond, and as such, the major and Certificate in ASL/English Interpreting is designed to satisfy that need with a rigorous program that will enable you, as a graduate, to interpret accurately and effectively.
Our faculty includes experienced professional interpreters, educators, researchers and consumers of interpreting services. The courses provided in this program will prepare you well for entry into this growing field.
For specific courses offered in a specific semester see the Schedule of Classes at Student Central.
