American Sign Language/English Interpreting

B.S.Ed. in American Sign Language/English Interpreting Program Flyer

The Bachelor of Science in Education degree in American Sign Language/English Interpreting is a rigorous program that prepares students to work as professional interpreters, ensuring communication access in a variety of settings wherever hearing and D/deaf or hard of hearing people come together. Our graduates go on to work in K-12 and post-secondary public educational settings, as well as other community, freelance, and staff interpreting positions. 

Valdosta State University is the only college in Georgia to offer a Bachelor’s Degree in American Sign Language/English Interpreting. Because of a critical shortage of American Sign Language interpreters, students in the Valdosta State program are in high demand, and the university boasts a 95-percent job placement rate for graduates. The degree program may be completed online (for Georgia residents) or on campus, where classes average approximately 15 students. Students gain hands-on experience by participating in fieldwork, service learning, and internships.
