AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE (ASL) INTERPRETING
Career Studies Certificate AN

Purpose: This program prepares students for careers in which it is necessary or helpful to proceed beyond sign language skills to become an interpreter. This requires vocabulary development, and enhanced processing, transliterating, and interpreting skills. Students will be prepared to take the Virginia Quality Assurance Screening (QAS) examination, passing it at a level sufficient to permit entry-level employment as a full-time or freelance professional interpreter in educational or governmental settings or private practice.

Admission Requirements: Successful completion of ASL 202 American Sign Language IV, ASL 125 The History and Culture of the Deaf Community, and INT 130 Interpreting: An Introduction to the Profession, or consent of instructor based on demonstrably equivalent skill level.
