As a Minor
Translation is the language of global communication, whether the text to be translated is a company’s year-end report, an ad campaign, a politician’s speech, a poem, or a novel. The interdisciplinary minor in Spanish-English translation, suitable for both Arts and Sciences and Business majors, allows students with good skills in English and Spanish to perfect their knowledge of both languages and gain the ability to produce fluent, accurate, and effective translations between them.
The minor is open to all students who have successfully completed a 4000-level Literature or Culture and Civilization course in Spanish. To complete the minor, students must take three courses:
- SPA 4003, Spanish-English Translation Workshop
