Deaf Studies Minor


The 14-credit hour minor is open to all students who are currently not majoring in ASL Interpreting.

Minor Requirements

Grading Requirement

A minimum grade of C- is required for each course.

GPA Requirements

A cumulative GPA of 2.00 or better must be achieved in minor coursework in order for a student to be certified for graduation with a minor in Deaf Studies.

Residency Requirement

Fifty percent (50%) of the minor must be completed through USF coursework.

Other Requirements

Seat availability in ASL courses is limited and is first-come/first-serve, with priority consideration given to ITT and DST majors needing ASL coursework to meet a major requirement to graduate. Declaring the minor does not guarantee seat availability; therefore, students should attempt to register as soon as possible each semester.
