American Sign Language

Learning American Sign Language (ASL) is so much more than memorizing signs. Similar to any language, ASL has its own rules for grammar, syntax and terminology. It’s a very conversational language and, although challenging, it is so rewarding.

Through the ASL program at UWM School of Continuing Education, you will learn to communicate using visual cues. Eyes, facial expressions, and body movements all work together to get a message across. And with more courses to choose from, both beginners and continuing students will find a level that’s perfect for them.
