Program candidates are actively involved in the Deaf community and can demonstrate fluency in both ASL and English as well as strong interpersonal skills and an aptitude for learning processed interpretation. The program does not require prior interpreting experience or prior study in interpretation. Educational background (an AA degree, 2 years of college credits or equivalent) and potential success in an upper division academic environment are key factors. The ASL/English Interpretation Program is a rigorous two year academic curriculum which incorporates national interpreter education standards recommended by the Conference of Interpreter Trainers (CIT).
