ASL & Interpreter Preparation

The A. Eugene & Bernice Hoeper ASL and Interpreting Program

Learn ASL and become an interpreter

Study Deaf culture and become proficient in American Sign Language. In addition to learning skills in the expressive and receptive use of American Sign Language (ASL), you can also prepare to professionally interpret between ASL and English in a high paying, in-demand career. Experiential and service learning, video lab assignments and on-site observations create a lively learning environment in which to hone your practical skills and theoretical knowledge.

My older brother Michael has been deaf since adolescence, and American Sign Language is an important form of communication in my family's life. The ASL Interpreter program at CCBC caught my eye.
