The College offers small classes, an active student-run club, and the uniqueness of the major translates into a cadre of students who work closely with one another and develop strong supportive relationships. While learning about the culture of deaf people, students in this major are dedicated to social justice issues while delighting in their abilities to interact with deaf individuals and participate in various deaf events.
When students graduate with a bachelor’s degree in ASL/English Interpreting, they are prepared to find challenging careers working as interpreters in educational, medical, business, religious, and a variety of other settings.
The demand for Sign Language Interpreters is expected to rise 46% from 2012 to 2022, an increase of 29,300 jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
