This program is designed to increase your fluency in American Sign Language (ASL) and help you to gain knowledge of Deaf culture and Deaf history so that you can effectively interact with Deaf individuals.

Deaf persons can benefit from this program by learning more about their own language, culture, and history.

Some courses in this program are delivered by the University of Manitoba (U of M) at their Fort Garry campus therefore you will travel between RRC and the U of M during the academic year. A typical schedule of classes would be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at the College, and Tuesday and Thursday at the U of M.

Once you are offered a seat in the RRC Deaf Studies program, you will be provided with information on how to apply for admission to the University of Manitoba and register for their courses.  Note: you may take the U of M classes prior to entering the Deaf Studies program.
