ITP 245 Course Description:

This course is designed to introduce various models and experiences of interpreting to students to prepare them for the tasks required for functioning as professional interpreters.  It also provides practical application of interpreting skills learned in the classroom.  Students are expected to observe working interpreters in field settings as well as work with student partners in mock and volunteer interpreting situations.  Observations and feedback from mock  and volunteer interpreting are kept in journal logs.  They will also be supervised and observed during the quarter by faculty members

Be aware of the differences between learning in an academic setting and learning in the community.
Each is beneficial, but each has its own particular benefits. Engage in both. ~Jack Hoza
