    About

    If you are interested in sign language and work well with people, a career as an interpreter could be an excellent choice for you.

    In this program, you will learn to facilitate communication between people who use sign language and those who do not. You will study American Sign Language, deaf culture, ethics, interpreting and more. The degree program provides the general education credits necessary for transfer to a four-year college or university.

    As an educationally focused Interpreter Training Program we prepare you by understanding the P-21 setting and practicum experiences in the classroom. Making it possible for deaf and hard of hearing children to learn and achieve equal access to education and to prepare for a future beyond their educational experience. Whether you want to work as an interpreter in education or in the broader community, this program will help prepare you to provide a valuable service to society.
