Educational Interpreting Concentration

The Educational Interpreting Concentration Fall 2022 Cohort has been admitted and all available scholarships awarded. The next graduate EIC cohort will begin Fall 2023.

The Educational Interpreting Concentration (EIC) is designed to meet the needs of (a) pre-certified students who aspire to national certification and work within K-12 settings as an educational interpreter or, (b) certified interpreters who seek to increase their specialized interpreting skill sets and knowledge base about educational interpreting in K-12 settings. The program includes 30 credit hours of courses in education, mentoring, research, service learning, and interpreting in K-12 educational settings. You can review the sample, anticipated sequence of courses (see button above) to see the classes that will be a part of the program. 

The EIC is offered via distance learning (no need to relocate). The master's program is developed in accordance with current spoken and signed language research and strives to provide students a foundation in interpreting studies literature, a deep understanding of the specialization of educational interpreting, and a growth mindset for lifelong learning and skills development. 

The program admits students each fall, and the application deadline is August 1

We are accepting names of those interested in beginning in January 2022 as part of the inaugural cohort while we wait for the online application for admission to be ready.
