Welcome to the Deaf Culture and American Sign Language (ASL) Research Guide! This guide is designed to assist you in your research.
Here at RCBC we believe in guaranteeing easily accessible, affordable content to benefit the learning experience of our students, enriching them academically, and professionally, in their chosen career path.
Think of a Lib Guide as a digital filing cabinet, full of tools that can do everything from enhance supplementary instruction to provide relevant, topical resources that will benefit a student’s prospective job hunt and professional development well beyond the classroom.
Lib Guides are part of a grant-funded RCBC initiative pertaining to freely available Open Educational Resources (OERs), which aim to change higher education into a comprehensive and diverse experience that works to serve students and ensure success is always within their reach.
Some of the OERs that RCBC welcomes you to peruse are subject-related study guides, the contact information of a number of national professional organizations and associations, links to such relevant institutions as the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service, as well as a multitude of free, digital textbooks on topics such as economics, investing, banking, and more.
Serve others in a variety of fields using American Sign Language to communicate, such as education, criminal justice and social services. Graduates of this program will be proficient in all aspects of ASL, demonstrate comprehensive knowledge of American Deaf Culture, demonstrate knowledge of prevalent models of deafness and more!
