    with the administration in order to make ASL courses available to students Why teach ASL at Columbia Columbia currently offers a wide range of languages for study and we strongly believe ASL should be included among them It is estimated that there are between 500 000 and 2 million users of ASL in the United States alone more than Hebrew Greek and Hindi all languages taught at Columbia ASL is indeed a true language containing morphology semantics syntax and pragmatics just like spoken languages Deaf culture and history are fascinating and extremely different from North American mainstream culture Deaf culture and ASLhave been popular fields of academic study at universities such asBrown Yale Stanford University of Chicago University of Pennsylvania and NYU In order for Columbia to maintain its status as a world class university it should keep up with its competitors and offer courses in this growing field What are the administration s arguments against offering ASL and what do we think about them The administration is unsure as to whether ASL meets the criteria for a foreign language as the objective of the requirement is to allow students to experience a different culture American Deaf Culture is radically different from mainstream North American culture Two prominent examples include Deaf Literature including Deaf poetry and storytelling and regional dialects reflecting diverse cultural variants Additionally the equivalent of social class in US culture could be classes of signers some more integrated and accepted into traditional Deaf culture than others ex Deaf signers with Deaf parents CODAs Deaf children of hearing parents which divides into those that attended Deaf schools from the start and those that were mainstreamed Deaf children of hearing parents who sign vs those that don t sign Gallaudet grads Deaf people with cochlear implants Hard of Hearing
