Master’s Degree in Program in Translation and Interpreting
Candidates for the Master’s of Arts (MA) degree complete coursework in the foundations and practice of translation and interpreting, and may specialize in Translation for the Professions, Literary and Applied Literary Translation, or Conference and Community Interpreting. The program is offered online as well as on campus. Requirements are identical, whether the MA is completed online or on campus. The final transcript and diploma do not specify the instructional mode. Both the online and the campus program are full-time programs and require a time commitment averaging about 25-30 hours per week.
We will accept qualified students working in any languages that our program can support. Currently, our core faculty represent expertise in Arabic, French, German, and Spanish.
