About the American Sign Language (ASL) / English Interpreting Programs
The University of North Florida's interpreting programs are committed to upholding the Standards formulated by the Commission on Collegiate Interpreter Education. The two Master’s degree concentrations are offered online with one on-campus weekend a maximum of once a semester (General Practitioner) or two,10-day summer sessions (Interpreting Pedagogy). The Bachelor’s degree concentration for transfer students (AS to BS, General Practice) is a blended learning program offered via hybrid technology with on-campus requirements one weekend per month. Students who pursue the Bachelor’s concentration in Community Interpreting begin their studies onsite at UNF and join the hybrid AS to BS courses in their final two years at UNF.
The BS and MS programs are developed in accordance with current spoken and signed language research and target interpreters who aspire to become nationally certified, improve their skills in specialized settings, and/or develop skills as interpreter educators. Deaf interpreters are encouraged to apply.
