Translation and interpretation are two of today’s fastest growing professions. An obvious requirement for anyone wishing to enter these professions is the ability to speak two languages fluently. Students who wish to make a positive impact as a translator or interpreter, however, require more than just the ability to speak two languages well. What they need is the linguistic, cultural and technical expertise they can only get from courses designed specifically to prepare them for the demands of these challenging professions. In the minor in translation and interpretation, students take their first steps toward acquiring this expertise.

The minor comprises one linguistic component, one elective component and four profession-specific linguistic components for a total of 18 credit hours.
