The Associate of Science (A.S.) in Sign Language Studies (SLS) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Sign Language Interpreting (SLI) Degrees offered at ISU were developed to advance awareness and meet the needs of deaf and hard of hearing people in a variety of settings. Our program focuses on interpreting in educational settings due to an increase in educational and certification requirements in this area. Upon successful completion of the Sign Language Studies Program, graduates are awarded an Associate of Science Degree and are eligible to apply for the Bachelor of Science Degree in Sign Language Interpreting. Sign Language Studies is only offered on the Pocatello campus. The Bachelors of Science Degree in Sign Language Interpreting is only offered on the Meridian campus.
