ASL-English Interpreting


This program provides an integrated series of coursework in American Sign Language (ASL) and ASL-English interpretation to prepare students for entry-level positions.
The series provides academic coursework based on a Deafcentered framework that encourages students to embrace an empowered collaboration with Deaf people. A foundation in ASL discourse and interpretation is established through theoretical models. Emphasis is on the practical application
