Translation Certificate Program Gets off the Ground

News, Newsletter

This past academic year, the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures launched our Certificate in Translation program. The program is designed for students interested in careers that involve the frequent translation of documents such as education, social work, literature, and business. The program also has a component in interpreting for a variety of legal settings (depositions, courts, lawyer’s offices) and healthcare (hospital, clinics, doctor’s offices).

The certificate program is open to current university students and college graduates seeking to add to their portfolio and make themselves more marketable to employers. The program has gotten off to a very encouraging start. We are very pleased to report that all the courses required for the certificate have been offered at least once, we have two students graduating with the certificate in Spring 2015, and 10 more students enrolled in the program.
