College: Education and Human Services
Degree: Bachelor of Science
Major: ASL/English Interpreting
Concentration: Community Interpreting
Effective Term: Fall 2018
The Osprey Map provides a term-by-term sample schedule for each undergraduate academic program at the University of North Florida. It is designed to guide students in the selection of courses each term. The "Mile Marker" courses in the right-hand column are those courses that should be completed before or by the end of that term. Following the sample schedule, and completing the mile marker courses at the appropriate point of your undergraduate career, will facilitate graduation in four years. The term-by-term model assumes full-time enrollment. For students enrolled part-time, the sample schedule and mile markers should be followed based on the number of credits completed. The Osprey Map should be used in consultation with an academic advisor.

The Community Interpreting concentration offers UNF students the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in ASL/English Interpreting from the time they enter as freshmen. The program prepares students for entry level work as signed language interpreters who work in a variety of community settings that may include education, medical, employment, and other public venues. Students may declare a major and be fully admitted to advanced coursework following successful completion of program prerequisite courses and the Limited Access Screening. This concentration admits 35 students in the fall term. Students are not guaranteed admission and cannot take upper division courses in the major (starting in Term 5) until admitted into the program.

Find additional information on the Limited Access Screening/Major Declaration webpage. The following courses must be completed or in progress to qualify for Limited Access Screening (LAS):

  • ASL2140 American Sign Language I (B grade or better)
  • ASL2150 American Sign Language II (B grade or better)
  • INT1000 Introduction to Interpreting (B grade or better)
  • ASL4131 American Sign Language III (C grade or better)
  • ASL4211 American Sign Language IV (C grade or better)
  • ASL3514 Deaf Culture (C grade or better)
  • INT3011 Linguistics for Interpreters (C grade or better)
  • INT2010 Discourse Analysis (C grade or better)
  • INT2113 English and ASL Sight Translation (C grade or better)
  • INT2303 Field Experience (C grade or better)

    Career Planning
    Engaging in career planning activities is significant to student success. UNF offers customized career centers to deliver targeted programs, events, services and resources. First-Year and Exploratory students should visit the Career Services webpage and Sophomore or higher level students with a declared COEHS major should visit the Office of Academic Support and Information Services (OASIS).

    Students should refer to their personalized Degree Evaluation provided by an academic advisor and to other university resources for additional university and college-specific policies. Visit the undergraduate university catalog for more information.

    Summer terms may be utilized to facilitate graduation in four years.
