Participation in the Concentration

A concentration in translation studies will appeal to students studying a foreign language and culture and who want to refine their knowledge of the foreign language through translation. It will also appeal to students who want to create a bridge between two majors, one of which is in a foreign language and culture and the other in a different discipline.

Student concentrators may not only be drawn to the literary side of translation; they may also seek to link their knowledge in the social sciences or sciences to their practice of a foreign language, translating governmental or legal documents, working with immigrant or refugee communities who need the help of a translator or interpreter, or translating scientific papers.
