Increasing numbers of deaf people seek the communicative access that interpreters provide, and this access is mandated by legislators, yet there is a shortage of qualified interpreters nationally and locally. IUPUI’s American Sign Language (ASL)/ English Interpreting Program is one of very few baccalaureate degree programs available in the country. It prepares students to become capable and flexible participants in the rewarding profession of interpreting.

The ASL/ English Interpreting Program introduce students to the theory and practice of interpreting. It provides a strong foundation in language, culture, interpreting, and linguistics. Students develop their abilities in ASL and English, analyze features of ASL and English, discuss ethical issues, and perform guided practice with both simultaneous and consecutive interpreting. The combination of this background with a broad liberal arts education prepares students to enter the profession of interpreting, which serves diverse populations and encompasses a wide range of subjects and settings.

The Bachelor of Science degree in ASL/English Interpreting is for students who have achieved fluency in American Sign Language and English through coursework at IUPUI and who wish to focus on theoretical and applied issues in interpreting. The program is also a continuation of the Associate of Arts degree in American Sign Language Studies offered by Vincennes University at its regional campus in Indianapolis at the Indiana School for the Deaf.

The program is also open to students who demonstrate equivalent competence in ASL, Deaf culture, and linguistics. Interested students should contact the program director at IUPUI. Students completing the ASL/English Interpreting B.S. program will achieve the following:

Knowledge

  • the professional code of conduct for interpreters and use acquired abilities to move toward achieving national certification.

Understanding

  • define basic concepts, terminology, processes, theories, and critical perspectives in interpreting
  • describe the entire communicative situation and why fluency in the languages and the ability to know how meaning is constructed is important to interpreters.
