Sign Language Interpreting

Interpretation is the art and science of receiving a message from one language and rendering it to another. High bilingual knowledge and flexibility in ASL and English is required. Our ASL and interpreting classes will give you the bilingual framework and the cognitive processing training you need to succeed.

The Sign Language Interpreting Program prepares students to interpret in a variety of settings. The program has been developed in accordance with the Conference of Interpreter Trainers (CIT) recommended course of study and is based on a broad foundation of liberal arts, sciences, professional education, research, and practicum. Students must pass the Intermediate level of the SLPI (Sign Language Proficiency Interview) and a Spoken English Assessment to be admitted into the Sign Language Interpreting Program.
