Is it possible to use American Sign Language (ASL) to satisfy my L&S BA or BS foreign language requirement?

The following section is mean for L&S degree-seeking candidates who are interested in using American Sign Language to satisfy his/her BA or BS foreign language requirement.

Students earning their undergraduate degree in the College of Letters & Science are able to use American Sign Language (ASL) to fulfill either their BA or BS foreign language requirement.   Currently UW-Madison does not offer ASL coursework that would count toward the L&S foreign language requirement.  Thus, using ASL to satisfy the L&S foreign language requirement is difficult for most students at this time.  The closest school/university in the area that offers UW-Madison approved ASL coursework that will count toward the L&S BA or BS foreign language requirement is the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.   Additional information about the UW-Milwaukee courses can be found at American Sign Language Studies and American Sign Language.
