American Sign Language Accreditation

American Sign Language Program

The Department of American Sign Language (ASL) and Interpreting at St. Kate's is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Interpreter Education.

St. Kate’s is the only interpreter education program in Minnesota accredited by the Commission — and among the few in the United States to offer an accredited bachelor’s degree program in interpreting.

Why should I choose an accredited program?

Accreditation provides recognition that the content and quality of the program has been evaluated and meets standards set by the profession. The student, as a consumer, can be assured that appropriate knowledge and skill areas are included and that the program is stable, professionally and financially.
