This track offers a comprehensive curriculum for teaching of interpreting to faculty of colleges nationwide. The Teaching of Interpreting is the only academic program in the Northern hemisphere, at Wake Forest University, to focus on methodology of teaching interpreting.


The curriculum in the Teaching of Interpreting program at Wake Forest University lays the foundation for understanding the interpreting encounter, the co-conversational process, and sociocultural determinations, among other important goals, and it includes a broad interdisciplinary research component, which is absent from the training seminars/workshops of other, non-academic programs.

The ITS Program prepares professionals to work in the growing language industry and meet the communication challenges in a variety of fields – foreign affairs, media, business, law and healthcare delivery.

Language requirements

This track requires strong foreign language competency and proven interpreting experience. It is, however, non-language specific. Courses are held in English and it is open to candidates with any language combination.

Duration and course requirements

This is a full-time (35 credit hour), intense, two-semester course of studies that runs from the end of August until mid-May.
