This study has a purpose that research the problem of university educational sign language interpretation nowadays and figure out the way of improvement this issue The purpose of concrete study is as follows; 1. Study the problem of domestic university of university educational sign language interpretation 2. Based on result of above, make a the way of improvement this issue. For researching the point at issue of university educational sign language interpretation, we conducted survey from 50 Deaf students who are taking the service of university educational sign language interpretation from Nazarene University and Korea National College of Rehabilitation & Welfare individually, and the duration was from Oct 18, 2007 to Nov. 9, 2007. Also we interview the person in university of disable students support department for listening to their thought. From this research, we have a conclusion as follows; 1. The main reason of this problem is shortage of sing language interpreters who are taking same class with the Deaf students. The university should provide qualified sing language interpreters to the students for solving the problem, and Deaf students will have a chance to improve their achievement of study through this service. 2. No enough sign language interpretation time. Shortage of sing language interpreters causes shortage of providing interpretation because the interpreter can’t earn the income during the vacation. If universities and enterprises join hands for supporting the interpreter to guarantee their income even during the vacation, the number of interpreters will apply for universities. Moreover, we strongly suggest to government to make a regulation that university must ensure the interpreter by ratio of Deaf students and guarantee their income, the shortage of supplying time will be resolved. 3.

The Deaf students choose the interpreter, and will be satisfied by qualified service from their choice. We suggest university to supply efficient and qualified university educational sign language interpretation service to the Deaf students for letting them to lead the community of Deaf in the future.
