This program prepares students for employment as interpreters for the deaf, and provides supplemental training for persons previously or currently employed in occupations such as nursing, education and human services agencies. Students learn vocabulary and linguistic principles of the language and the process for interpreting into both English and American Sign Language (ASL). Students will also study the ethical and professional considerations of working in this field. Finally, cognitive information is presented which deals with aspects of deaf culture and the phenomenon of deafness itself.
The Sign Language Interpretation Program (SLIP) is a selective access program and admission is based on passing the Proficiency in American Sign Language Exam (PACE), which is administered by the SLIP staff. Students may have achieved the requisite ASL skills through life experience or formal instruction.
ASL 1140 and ASL 1150 (American Sign Language I and II) are offered for college foreign language credit.
You have one degree option in this program: the associate in science (A.S.) degree, which can prepare you for employment or transfer to a state university.
This associate in science degree program is intended primarily for students who desire to complete an associate in science degree and become employed. Students who decide to pursue university transfer study must meet certain course and test requirements. For details refer to the university transfer guide.
This A.S. degree program articulates into a bachelor’s degree program. For more information, please visit the Transfer Services–FCCJ Majors Web page and look for your A.S. program of study.
