Program

The aim of the four-year B.A. program is to teach students the theories and techniques of translation and interpreting, and to provide them with the necessary cultural background and skills for a career in translation and conference interpreting.In the fourth year students specialize in either translation or conference interpreting. Specialization in interpreting is subject to the students' success in previously completed INT-coded courses and in a screening test given at the end of the third year.All students must complete a total of 24 credits in French and/or German as a second and third foreign language requirement.Students starting with 100-level language courses in their first year fulfill the requirement by completing two 400-level translation courses in this second foreign language; those starting with 200-level courses in the first year, by completing four 400-level literature and translation courses in their second foreign language. Those able to complete 300-level courses in their first year can start their third foreign language only after completing the four 400-level courses. Students who join the department with an excellent command of French or German can register for their third language after completing two 400-level translation courses in their second foreign language during their first year.

Our students can check their progress in the program using this template.
