Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study - Alphabetical Listing

Statewide Program

The Certificate program is ideal for students who want to become ASL Interpreters but already have a degree. While the Certificate program does not include general education course requirements, some INTR courses do have general education prerequisites. Transcript evaluation may be necessary to determine if prerequisites have been fulfilled. Course requirements are listed below.

Total Number of Credits Required for Certificate: 42*

*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101  course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the certificate to 43 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

Program Outcomes:

Upon completion of this certificate, students will be able to:

  1. assess whether their skills match those needed on a particular interpreting assignment; 
  2. interpret consecutively and simultaneously in a low-key, one-on-one setting;
  3. use internal and external cues to maintain accuracy and determine if assignment goals are being met;
  4. incorporate feedback from a mentor, team interpreter, and/or deaf consumer into their interpretations;
  5. adjust language style for the situation, guided by the consumer’s preference; and
  6. function appropriately in an interpreting situation following the interpreter’s Code of Professional Conduct.
