Sign Language Interpreting Internship
Educational Interpreting students are required to take a maximum of eight (8) credits of Internship. This experience will take place the last eight (8) weeks of the students' senior year. Therefore, all other course work must be completed prior to the internship. Most of our internship placement sites are in K-12 educational settings although exceptions are occasionally allowed. The student will collaborate with the Internship Coordinator to establish a site the semester prior to internship assignment.
Some previous placement sites include: Idaho School for the Deaf and the Blind, MT School for the Deaf and the Blind, Tennessee School for the Deaf and the Blind, Pocatello School District, Boise School District, Meridian School District, Eugene, OR School District, Wasilla, Alaska School District, Vancouver Washington School of Arts & Academics, and Mesa, Arizona Public Schools. Students will be required to complete a background check through the Idaho State Dept. of Education before they can go on their internship.
