Interpreter Training Technology


The Interpreter Training Technology Associate of Applied Science degree prepares graduates for entry-level careers as American Sign Language/English Interpreters. The interpreter training technology program will provide graduates with a strong academic and technical foundation designed to prepare them for state certification.

The Interpreter Training Technology Associate of Applied Science degree requires the completion of 65 semester credit hours of coursework including 16-17 semester credit hours of general academic courses and 49 semester credit hours of technical coursework. The program includes a supervised internship as a capstone external learning experience, which integrates all instructional components of the program.

Students may also earn an ASL Communications Skills certificate. This 17 credit hour program concentrates on developing skills that are required for simple communication with ASL speakers. It is not intended to prepare students to perform as interpreters. Students who desire those skills should complete the Associate of Applied Science degree.

The general education core will transfer to a variety of colleges and universities. Contact a counselor or faculty member at any of the colleges for specific information and to obtain the recommended sequencing of courses.
