This 45-credit MA in Interpreting Studies: Entry-Level program includes 18 credits of supervised internship (that can happen in conjunction with paid work), and additional coursework to continue honing and developing skills to confidently launch into interpreting as a career path. If you are ready to apply, here is the link with all the necessary information. If you have questions specific to your circumstances, please contact Interpreting Studies Program Coordinator, Dr. Elisa Maroney at Please know that while this degree is primarily online (exclusively online during the academic year), we do have on-campus residency requirements each summer.

In light of the events that took place Wednesday regarding the detainment of a former WOU student by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), our office would like to request that anyone with information or questions regarding current WOU international students who have been contacted by a federal agency please contact Ambre Plahn in the Office of International Education and Development.

We understand that these situations pose additional stress and a feeling of uneasiness not only with our current International students but campus wide, we take these situations very seriously. This is why it is of utmost importance that each case be directed to our office so that we may advise with all immigration resources available to us and make proper contact with all government departments within our network. This will ensure that each case is handled properly and protocol is followed strictly within immigration regulation.

Ambre Plahn is the Primary Designated School Official by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to handle international student related issues, and is responsible for the U.S. Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). She can be reached at, 503-838-8434 or on her cell phone at 503-689-5644.]

Thank you and have a great rest of the week.
