Sign Language Interpreting, BS
The objective of this program is to prepare students to enter the field of sign language interpreting as a professional who can make a significant contribution to the deaf community and the field of interpreting for the deaf. Interpreters must be proficient in both English and American Sign Language.
Today’s interpreters work with a variety of deaf consumers: those who acquired American Sign Language (ASL) as their first language, those who communicate through a form of visual English, and those who use a contact variety form of English and ASL. Interpreters also work with a variety of hearing consumers: from those who are familiar with American deaf culture and the process of interpreting, to those who are communicating with a deaf person for the first time.
