School of Deaf and Deafblind Studies

Interested in a career working with the Deaf and the Deafblind?

By learning to work as a professional Interpreter, you will empower members of the Deaf and deafblind community by giving them greater access to the world around them allowing them to experience life to the fullest.

For those who are interested in learning American Sign Language, we offer a one-year certificate program that introduces you to the language and culture of the Deaf community. This program also prepares you for further study in our more advanced programs.


Our 4th year students provide limited pro bono interpreting services in authentic settings within the GTA by offering the Volunteer Student Interpreting Services.
