Are you a lifelong learner? Do you enjoy languages and learning about other cultures? Do you already have exposure to American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf culture? The field of interpreting may be the path for you.
The Associate in Science (A.S.) in ASL/English Interpreting provides students with a unique opportunity to transform a passion for language, culture and people into an exciting, challenging and rewarding career.
The ASL program prepares students with minimum-level English and ASL abilities to enter the workforce and transfer to bachelor's programs. The curriculum provides the foundational knowledge of interpretation and emphasizes interpreting skill development through American Sign Language classes and Sign Language Interpretation classes. Students are provided with progressive simulated experiences, ongoing diagnostic feedback and a local internship.
The A.S. in ASL/English Interpreting is nationally accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Interpreter Education (CCIE).
