The Department of Interpretation and Translation doctoral program at Gallaudet University includes four
research internship courses. In these courses, students are paired with established research scholars to
work collaboratively on specific interpreting and translation studies. Working alongside scholars, both
within the Department of Interpretation and Translation and at other universities, provides
opportunities for students to learn more about research methodology, data collection, analysis, and
publication. The internship courses are intended to guide students in achieving a greater level of
understanding that can be applied to their own research projects. The following scholars
have generously contributed to the development of future scholars within the Department of
Interpretation and Translation.
