American Sign Language

American Sign Language

The ASL program prepares students for entry-level employment as translators or interpreting, and to pursue degrees in ASL and Deaf Studies. ASL is a non-verbal, highly visual, language course.

Employment Opportunities in ASL

ASL is in high demand, not only in response to the Americans with Disabilities Act, but also due to the growth in the Deaf community in the US. ASL interpreters and translators are in high demand in education, the court system, hospitals, social work, law enforcement, the medical and health professions, business, customer service, and many other careers where contact with the Deaf community is a must.

Agribusiness

"The agribusiness program and the different teachers in this field have helped me in so many ways and shaped what I want to do in my life. They have also helped me get an internship. This program has prepared me for Cal Poly by not only being involved and helping in the community but by helping me realize how many people in the community are willing to help students succeed. My Career goal is to transfer to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and someday be involved in the nursery business interacting with different plant breeders."
