Graduate Studies in Interpreting and Translation at the Department of Communication in the College of Arts and Humanities at the University of Maryland

I recently wrote about the specialization on court interpreting that will soon be available at Monterey Institute of International Studies (Monterey, California).  See, my December 7 post.  This week, I learned about the new graduate programs in interpretation and translation offered by the Department of Communication (College of Arts and Humanities) of the University of Maryland.  I am thrilled to see more intepretation and translation programs at the graduate level. Language proficiency by prospective students is one of the main challenges faced by interpreting programs. Generally speaking, students at the graduate level are more likely to meet the language proficiency requirement.

These degrees offered bye the University of Maryland are the following:

• Master of Professional Studies in Interpreting, which offers two tracks:  
  Conference Interpreting; or Public Service Interpreting


• Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Translation and a

• Master of Professional Studies in Translation, which offers two tracks:
  Translation; or Translation and Localization Project Management

 The programs are receiving applications for both national and international students. The deadline for international applicant is March 1, 2013 for fall 2013 admission.
