This program prepares students for careers in the growing translation field. Students take courses in Spanish language, literature and civilization in conjunction with specialized courses in translation/interpretation theory and practice. Allied courses in English and related fields of study are required and must be approved by the program adviser. Sufficient flexibility is built into the program so that students may tailor certain requirements to fit their individual needs and interests. An intensive internship in translation and/or interpretation serves as the student’s capstone experience and preparation for future professional settings. Please see the department of Romance Languages for more details regarding this new and innovative program of study.
Foundational Courses must be completed before embarking upon the major. Students with appropriate background may be exempted from some or all Foundational Courses. See department for proper placement.
