Interpreting is an exciting and in-demand career, and UWM’s ASL/English Interpreting Major will give you the edge you need to succeed.
In general, the interpreting and translation field is growing much faster than other occupations, with job opportunities expected to increase 46 percent by 2022, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The bureau notes that ASL interpreters are especially sought-after.
Our extensive program goes beyond teaching students about language, culture and how to facilitate conversations. We work to develop well-rounded interpreters who value and consider others’ perspectives, who are culturally sensitive and empathetic practitioners who continually work to better themselves and the interpreting profession.
