Comments about Deaf Studies Certificate Program - At the institution - Hempstead - NY - New York
Hofstra's Deaf Studies Certificate Program is a 200-hour program that is composed of a sequence of non-credit courses that lead to a clear level of competence in American Sign Language (ASL). The certificate is awarded to students who successfully complete the six required courses listed below plus an additional 36 classroom hours obtained through a variety of elective courses and workshops. The courses and workshops in this program are continually updated and rotated. Courses may be taken on an individual basis without participating in the certificate program. Affiliated instructors are both hearing and deaf. Students with advanced standing may substitute courses taken at other institutions to meet the CE six-course certificate requirement, and are encouraged to call (516) 463-7600 for pre-registration advisement. A minimum of four courses must be taken at Hofstra Continuing Education to earn the certificate.
