Deaf Education is a specialized education field that opens up learning for students
who are deaf or hard of hearing. Studying American Sign Language (ASL) at Collin College

a four-year college.
You’ll learn essential foundational ASL skills, become familiar with Deaf culture and get an introduction to the discipline of education. See the education plan below to learn how you can earn an associate of arts with coursework in American Sign Language.
To earn an associate degree, complete the 42 credit hour General Education Core, and 18 credit hours of general studies electives and the Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree requirements.
