Additional Information

Community Interpreting - This course addressed the broadest and most flexible of interpreter specialties: community interpreting. Community interpreters deal with interactions involving education, the workplace, financial institutions, banking, insurance companies, and public welfare agencies, as well as a variety of settings, clients, and ethical considerations. Students study real-life situations involving speakers of different languages who must communicate and reach agreements regarding living conditions, work, social services, and legal obligations, or any combination of scenarios. Coursework focuses on case studies, role-plays, and cultural comparisons.

Medical Interpreting - This course provides tools to develop and master the art of medical interpreting and to understand the role, responsibilities, and boundaries of the interpreter as an active team player in medical interviews and procedures. Special consideration is given to privacy concerns and the ethical guidelines of interpreting in a medical setting. The course also considers the interpreter’s role as linguistic and cultural mediator, and provides an introduction to anatomy, physiology, medical terminology, medical procedures, and the roles of various medical providers

Legal Interpreting - (Currently enrolled) - This course presents the full range of legal scenarios that often require interpreters, including criminal court sessions, depositions, and financial and housing scenarios. It is imperative that interpreters working in this area understand the fundamentals of legal processes and master legal terminology, so there is an emphasis on acquiring this knowledge. Students also learn to follow the strict ethical standards and responsibilities by which legal interpreters are bound. This course covers these fundamentals through lectures, discussion, and practicums.
