Bachelor of Science in ASL/English Interpreting

Educational Interpreting Concentration

The Educational Interpreting Concentration Fall 2023 Cohort has been admitted and applications are closed.  All scholarships have been awarded. Next cohort will begin in Fall 2024 (applications will be due March 31, 2024).

This program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Interpreter Education. 

The Educational Interpreting Concentration (EIC) allows students to pursue an Interpreting major at UNF with a specialized concentration in educational interpreting in K-12 settings. The program is a full, 120-credit-hour B.S. degree program from start to finish.  Students may complete the first two years at UNF or complete an Associate of Arts in ASL/English interpreting degree elsewhere and transfer to UNF.  Once admitted to the EIC program, comprised of the junior and senior years, students will have a combination of courses that are fully online and other courses that are blended with face-to-face meetings at UNF one weekend (Friday evening, and full days on Saturday and Sunday) per month during the fall and spring semesters.  You can access an example of the anticipated course sequence by selecting the button above, to see which classes are taught in each semester.  All students should follow this course sequence to complete the program on time.

To comply with Commission on Collegiate Interpreter Education (CCIE) standards, UNF has implemented Limited Access Screening to ensure all students entering the final 48 hours have minimum competencies in English, American Sign Language, and Cognitive Processing, and are ready for advanced interpreting coursework. Prior to declaring a major in ASL/English Interpreting, students must successfully complete the Prerequisite and Core Requirements courses in the Course Catalog, pass the Admissions Screening, maintain a 2.75 GPA, and have a 'B' or better in ASL I, ASL II, Introduction to Interpreting, and ENC 1101.   

The undergraduate program admits students each fall, and the application deadline is March 31.
