Interpreter Preparation Program (IPP)

The Interpreter Preparation Program prepares graduates to work as ASL/English interpreters in education and other settings.

What is an interpreter?

An interpreter is a person who is fluent in two or more languages and can render a message from one language to another, conveying the meaning and intent of the speaker. English-American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters listen to a spoken English message and give the same message in ASL, a visual spatial language, or watch an ASL message and deliver the same message in spoken English.

The Interpreter Preparation Program offers a number of options for students wishing to study American Sign Language (ASL).
