British Sign Language and Deaf Studies

British Sign Language (BSL), sign linguistics and deaf studies at UCLan have long been recognised for world-leading research, continuous top student satisfaction rates and pioneering work on the development of employability skills, which by studying your degree with us, means that you can benefit from UCLan as the leading Higher Educational Institution in the UK for the training of BSL-English interpreters. You’ll study an undergraduate course which cover all aspects of deafness as a social and cultural phenomenon and will enable you to develop a fluency in British Sign Language. The wealth of modules available to choose from will give you the advantage to design a course to meet your individual interests and career goals. BSL is a compulsory element of the course in the first two years and is highly practical to ensure continued development. BSL can be continued up to level 6 through the optional modules available. There is no BSL fluency or knowledge required to gain entry to the course but for those who do hold qualifications and skills, there are various modules available to allow the continuing enhancement of practical skills and theoretical knowledge. You will be assessed on your BSL skills at the interview stage in order to be placed in the most appropriate class once your studies commence. Graduates from BSL and Deaf Studies degree courses enter a variety of careers and professions, which include: Lecturers (HE and FE) Teachers (Primary, Secondary, Specialist Teacher of the Deaf) BSL/English Interpreters (freelance and agency) Deaf Welfare organisations Social Workers Educational Support Workers Media Police Higher degrees and research Running their own businesses
