American Sign Language/English Interpreting

The ASL/English Interpreting Program prepares students to work with children and adults who are Deaf or have a hearing loss. The interpreting courses and instructors prepare students to interpret in educational, K-12 settings. Graduates of the KSU program receive licensure from the state of Ohio to interpret in pre-K-12. These skills provide the framework for students to interpret at the post-secondary level. Students also receive instruction and practice to interpret in community settings. Community interpreting includes medical and mental health venues, social service offices, video relay, religious, and employment, to name a few.
