Sign Language Interpretation

American Sign Language interpreters work with deaf and hearing people, relaying signed messages into spoken languages and spoken messages into signed language. Professional interpreters work in a variety of settings including education, conferences, social services, health care, and law. Students enter the full-time two-year program each fall term; enrollment is limited. Prerequisite courses include successful completion of ASL 240, Deaf Studies, and Intermediate American Sign Language skills.
