Thinking about learning sign language? Columbia College Chicago Online offers two innovative courses in American Sign Language (ASL) designed to turn your passion for the language into proficiency.

In Foundations of American Sign Language, you’ll build your conversational skills to better communicate with Deaf individuals in both your personal and professional life. Learn a vital skill that will open doors to a career as an ASL interpreter and help you advocate for the Deaf community.
Then put your knowledge to work in Intermediate American Sign Language. In this course, you will continue to develop conversational fluency in ASL while learning key expressive and receptive skills. Discover exciting career opportunities in interpretation, communication and storytelling as you learn from internationally-acclaimed ASL instructors.
Foundations of American Sign Language is not required to take Intermediate, but if you’re not sure if you’re ready for the intermediate course, this short survey can help you decide.


Learning a new language is a great way to meet new people, familiarize yourself with new cultures and communicate with others. Our flexible, online courses are 8-weeks long and asynchronous to accommodate your busy schedule.
