There has been a long history of teaching interpreting within a professional degree paradigm – focusing on technical skills. This is traditionally taught at the undergraduate level. Taking our lead from spoken language interpreters, sign language interpreting scholars have begun to develop graduate programs in the United States and the United Kingdom with a focus on the research and theoretical underpinnings of interpreting – Interpreting Studies (IS). In an effort to reach new heights in interpreter education, this panel discussion with faculty members from the United States, the United Kingdom, England, and Germany, will explore the aim of graduate programs in IS and how that may differ and overlap with graduate and undergraduate trainings in interpreting. The panellists are renowned scholars for their work in interpreting training, as practitioners, and their contribution to the research of IS.
