Overview of Deaf Studies and Interpreting

The DSI Technology Program offers a two-year course of study and a One-Year Program (45 hour) for those needing to comply with ADA requirements or to enhance their value in the work force upon graduation.

The Two-Year Program prepares students for the interpreting profession and provides an intense educational background that will facilitate the student’s pursuit of additional academic experience and degrees.

Classes provide contact with deaf and hearing impaired in the community to promote a better understanding of cultural issues and to broaden the student’s experience in communication in different sign languages.
