About this Program

The Translating and Interpreting Certificate is designed to educate students who wish to develop professional interpreting skills. It is especially well suited for students who have previous post-secondary education who wish to provide accurate, culturally-competent interpretation in a variety of settings in our increasingly diverse communities. Coursework includes consecutive interpreting, simultaneous interpreting, translation techniques, working within the code of ethics of interpreting, intercultural communication, critical thinking, collaboration and concepts in psychology and socio-linguistics. Interpreters will be prepared to work in K-12 schools, health care facilities, community clinics, social service agencies, and legal settings. Program costs listed below are approximate, and books and other fees are not included for general education coursework.
