Sign Language Interpreting

Department of Sign Language Interpreting

Mission Statement

The faculty and staff of the Sign Language Interpreting program strive to graduate students who excel in effective communication, seek to participate in a vibrant community of interpreters, and embrace the cause of equality for persons who are disenfranchised due to a degree of hearing loss. We foster critical and creative thinking, integrates the Scriptures and personal faith with formal studies and challenges students toward a global perspective.

Specifically, students are educated about the language and culture of the Deaf community, trained in the essentials of sign language interpreting, and assisted in developing professional and ethical decision-making skills. Our curriculum aligns with CIT and NAD's standards and reflects the skill mastery criteria outlined by RID.
