TRAN 599 - Translation Internship or Study Abroad

Variable Credit Hours

This course is designed to introduce and involve students in active translation/interpreting tasks within specific field settings and under the supervision of faculty associated with the program and to the student’s professional track. Collaboration with Career Services, the Office of Community Based-Learning is required. The overall purpose is to ensure that students have a professional opportunity in which they are active in translation/interpreting tasks, as well as have other learning activities related to the general work context of translation/interpreting, (e.g. attending, conferences, an agency visit, interpreter-assisted court proceedings, shadowing in health care settings etc.) The program will facilitate finding and sharing with students all internship and community-based openings as possible, however students are encouraged to seek opportunities that best fit their specific and individual needs.

In lieu of TRAN 599, students may travel abroad with a Study Abroad program connected to one of the student’s languages of expertise. Students who decide to study abroad to gain credits towards the Translation and Interpretation Studies minor will need to complete assignments or take courses related to the field of Translation and Interpretation Studies while outside of the United States.
