SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Certificate of Advanced Study in American Sign Language
The current Certificate in ASL requires only completion of EDS 150-152 (ASL 1-3: Beginning to Intermediate). These three courses also correlate with the Foreign Language requirement at CSUS. Currently, students are basically rewarded with a certificate for simply completing their Foreign Language requirement. In addition, the current level now allows students to receive the Certificate after having completed only intermediate level coursework in ASL. It is proposed that the requirement be raised to include completion of EDS 153 (ASL 4: Advanced ASL: Instructing and Informing). In addition, students will be required to have completed at least 7 units of ASL, including EDS 153, at CSUS in order to receive a Certificate. Further, a minimum GPA of 2.0 must be maintained in each of the four courses for receipt of the certificate. With this change, it is felt that the Certificate will have more value to its holders and prospective employers examining candidates’ credentials.
