Endorsement

Teaching ASL in the Public Schools

This program is a state-approved concentration leading to an endorsement for teaching American Sign Language as a foreign language requirement in the public schools. These six courses focus on the skills and tools necessary to teach American Sign Language in public school settings. This is a non-reciprocal endorsement. We cannot guarantee that this curriculum will satisfy other states’ requirements for the Teaching American Sign Language in Public Schools endorsement.

If you do not hold a Florida Teaching Certification, but still wish to take the below courses, you may enroll in our Non-Degree Seeking option.
