The annual Fall Forum is both organized and interpreted by students in the MA in Interpretation program.
The Fall Forum is a unique opportunity for second-year interpretation students to perform consecutive interpretations in a professional environment. Students in other academic programs see interpreters at work and as a result, consider how to work effectively with an interpreter.
Themes are chosen to facilitate a cross-cultural and cross-language discussion on topics of interest among the MIIS community. Speakers are invited from other graduate programs at MIIS and from the local Monterey area to speak in a non-English language and offer their opinions and experience on the chosen theme.
