The CASL program, offered by Carleton’s School of Linguistics and Language Studies, is designed for anyone wishing to benefit from an officially recognized capacity for communicating with members of the deaf community who use American Sign Language. Students in the ASL Minor are able to obtain a Certificate if they fulfill the additional requirements. The CASL program may be taken simultaneously with a BA program in Linguistics or Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies, or with other majors, allowing you to graduate with both a degree and a certificate at the same time. You can also pursue this program as a post-degree certificate.
To be eligible for admission to the CASL, students must have already obtained a degree or be registered in a degree program at Carleton University with an overall CGPA of 5.0 or higher. Students registered in the concurrent CASL program who fail to complete their degree cannot receive the CASL.
