An American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter facilitates communication between those who are deaf or hard of hearing and those who can hear. Headquartered at the Aurora Downtown Campus, Waubonsee's interpreter training program includes an Associate in Applied Science Degree, as well as two Certificates of Achievement.
Our interpreter training students enjoy the many benefits of belonging to a well-established program, which was the first of its kind in the state when it was established in 1975. Still, the program remains on the cutting edge through the use of digital technology as a teaching/learning tool.
Students may join ASL-Deaf Connection, a student-organized club where students can build rapport with the deaf community and hone their interpreting skills.
