ASL - English Interpreting B.A.
*Bachelor of Arts degree programs require a minor and a year of a foreign language.
The interpreting program prepares students to effectively communicate and interpret between American Sign Language (ASL) and English. Practicum experiences are provided in educational, medical, vocational and other settings. The program also provides for interaction with students at the Missouri School for the Deaf, the local deaf community, and deaf instructors and tutors in a state-of-the-art interpreting lab.
Students must earn a grade of ‘C’ or better to continue on in their sequence of majors courses. If a student does not receive a grade of ‘C’ or better, they will be invited to repeat the course. The curriculum is designed for classes to layer information and skill, thus lack of skill development in a prerequisite course will not lead to success in future work. For example: If a student receives a ‘C’ in Interpreting II they may go on to Interpreting III. If a student receives a ‘D’ in Interpreting II, they will be invited to repeat the course until they earn a grade of ‘C’ or better.
