DGS Classes: University of Göttingen

As of the 2010 summer term, the German Department is offering language courses in German Sign Language, which are connected to the linguistic sign language branch of the university. Students participating in advanced theoretical B.A. and in M.A. linguistics courses thus get the chance to acquire practical skills in DGS. All courses are taught by deaf, native and trained DGS-teachers who use latest course materials that were designed in collaboration with native deaf signers and professional linguists, which are competent in DGS.
