2016-17 Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs

Interpreting and Sign Language Studies

The BAS is a 2+2 degree. Students will complete an AAS in American Sign Language & Interpreting Studies at LRSC* and then transfer to MSU to complete years 3 and 4, resulting in a BAS in Interpreting & Sign Language Studies from MSU. Courses will be delivered through distance technology so that students can take the program while being physically located at either campus. An articulation agreement and MOA will be signed between both institutions. The curriculum for years 3 and 4 is listed below (MSU courses). A full description of the entire program is attached. *Students may enter the BAS having obtained an AAS in Interpreting from another institution.
