Course Overview

This course focuses on translating and interpreting skills in one-on-one and small groups interactions with a focus on source materials with legal implications in education, medical, business and government settings. Students will analyze co-constructed meaning in light of interactive discourse strategies that participants employ. Also, students will practice translation and consecutive interpreting skills as viable modes of interpretation, as precursors to simultaneous interpretation and as a blending of consecutive and simultaneous interpretation. Students will incorporate the activities of planning and preparation for interpreting assignments and incorporate ethical practices in their work.

Prerequisites: Successful completion of INT 325 with a grade of B or above and an ASLPI score of 3 or higher (the INT Department will verify student ASLPI score before granting course registration permissions) or permission of the instructor.
