About this Program

This program prepares individuals for the art and science of interpreting between American Sign Language and English. Students will experience a variety of learning environments, including classroom work, laboratory practice and field placement. Program content focuses on the development of skills and techniques that will be required when receiving a message in one language and rendering it into another language. In addition to interpreting theory and skills courses, students will gain an appreciation for the language and culture of the Deaf Community. Because interpretation involves the appropriate transfer and transmission of culturally based linguistic and non linguistic information, students will be required to have both in-class and out-of-class experiences with members of the Deaf Community.
