The University of Illinois online Master of Arts degree in Translation & Interpreting has allowed me the flexibility I needed to balance my family responsibilities, full time work and school. The program includes a balanced blend of online discussions, instructor led classroom videos, scholarly readings and practical individual and group projects. This program has provided me with ample opportunity and resources to apply my learning outcomes. The courses are engaging, practical, and challenging. Each professor I've had has also taken the time to share their personal experiences as a translator and/or interpreter, providing the class with a realistic outlook of the profession. What I've also found to be invaluable is the honest feedback I've received from both peers and professors and the practical experience I've gained
