Foreign language interpreters are in demand by public agencies and private
corporations that seek to provide services and employment to people from refugee
and immigrant communities. This program trains students for entry level
positions as interpreters. Students must have native fluency in a non-English
language and good verbal and written English skills. Students learn sequential,
simultaneous and sight interpretation as well as workplace expectations. Since
many interpreters are independent contractors, students also the skills
necessary to act in this capacity.
