Modern Language Translation

Description

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Modern Language Translation Certificate program is designed for professionals who plan to pursue a career in translation and train for the American Translators Association (ATA) certification exam. The certificate is also intended for individuals who wish to communicate effectively in a multilingual and multicultural work environment. The sequence of courses provides translation training from Arabic, French, or Spanish into English.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

The Modern Language Translation Certificate program is open to students who have completed their undergraduate work, including 20 hours or equivalent in the appropriate foreign language.  The program is also open to graduate students who have native or near-native reading and writing proficiency in English and Arabic, French, or Spanish.

Translation workshops are open to all qualified students, including native and heritage speakers.

Enrollment in a degree program is not necessary for these classes.

DEGREE REQUIREMENTS

The Modern Language Translation Certificate requires completion of sixteen credit hours, all five courses in one language sequence. The Translation Certificate is granted to students who complete each course in the sequence with a grade of B or better.

As part of the admissions process, students take a placement test to verify their language proficiency.  If the test reveals that a student does not have an advanced proficiency in the foreign language or in English, but they are close, the student will be required to take and pass with a grade of B or better an ENG/ARA/FRE/SPA 300-level course to strengthen proficiency.
