The Interpreter Training program at Cincinnati State is a stepping stone toward competency in the field of sign language interpreting, including extensive coursework in American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf studies. A rich learning environment is created through a combination of classroom instruction, experiential and self-directed growth, and community involvement.
Interpreting between ASL and English is a challenging task. Students learning the profession must develop fluency in a language that is different from spoken languages. Once fluency is achieved, students must develop the skills to facilitate communication quickly and accurately between the two languages.
