Japanese<>English, MA 2015
"The online program for the Masters in Translation and Interpreting at UIUC provided me with an opportunity to go back to school while continuing to work. My children were very young at the time, so I was very happy to be able to find a program that provided a high quality education remotely so that I could take classes from home. Being able to take classes remotely allowed me to complete the program in Japan without having to relocate to Illinois. I had already been working as a professional translator and interpreter in Japan, and the graduate degree allowed me to teach at the university level."
