Become a professional interpreter

Many students who study American Sign Language (ASL) gain a deep appreciation for the way it uses the entire body to convey a message. If you love ASL and want to make it your career, we encourage you to add a Minor in Interpreting to your Deaf Studies major. This minor provides advanced classes that will help you learn the skills you need to become a professional interpreter. Although no specific degree is required to become an interpreter, there are two standardized tests that are commonly used in credentialing: the EIPA test and the RID/NIC exam. Passing these exams requires extensive practice and training, but the result is a rewarding and high-paying career helping others.

Current students can add this minor here.
