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.
The concentration will be limited to 12 students per class year. Students are encouraged to apply for participation in the concentration in the fall of their sophomore year.
