ASL 2450 - Deaf People, Society, and the Law

This course will explore the Deaf community, discrimination, and laws affecting Deaf people in the United States. We will consider the experiences of Deaf people before and after such measures as the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 to gain insight into how the law affects social perceptions and people’s everyday lives. No prior knowledge of ASL or Deaf culture is required for this course.

Credits: 3
