Project Description

Erica Alley, Assistant Professor of Interpreting Studies and Communication Equity, received $910 to design the second research course within the three-course sequence for the new Master of Arts in Interpreting Studies and Communication Equity (MAISCE).

The MAISCE program educates professional signed language interpreters who seek to enhance their role as leaders at the local, national, and global level. Students pursuing a MAISCE degree gain theoretical knowledge about the linguistic, political, and organizational factors that shape communication in society and ultimately apply that knowledge to the design and implementation of a thesis or action research project.

In the first course, students learn about research methodologies frequently used in the field of interpretation. In this second course, they will begin to develop their research project. The course will culminate in a completed research proposal submitted to the IRB for approval. Finally, in the last course, students will be guided through the application of their research methodology, collection of data, and development of a final paper.
