New! Graduate Minor


The Graduate Minor in Translation and Interpreting Studies is available beginning in the Spring 2022 semester.

Why complete a Graduate Minor in Translation and Interpreting Studies?

It is hard to imagine a field of study better positioned to meet the demands of an increasingly global society than Translation and Interpreting. Translation and Interpreting as areas of study and professional practices are dedicated to the development of an awareness of the far-ranging implications of each culture's, and each language's, positioning and identity within a global context.

Students who graduate from the University of Illinois with the Graduate Minor credential immediately expand their professional options, whether by enhancing the skills developed in their major field of study, or by creating new professional pathways.

What preparation will the Graduate Minor in Translation and Interpreting Studies provide?

Students completing the 16-hour Graduate Minor in Translation and Interpreting Studies will have a firm grasp of the theoretical concepts and debates in the Translation and Interpreting field, as well as an exposure to the conventions of the profession and a solid basis for any further desired professional preparation. The Minor allows UIUC graduate students to choose to gain a wider understanding of the general field's practices and theories by taking elective courses in more than one area; or to develop more in-depth expertise by taking both elective courses in the same subfield.
