Basic computer literacy is expected of all incoming students. Essential skills include being able to traverse the Microsoft Windows desktop and operate commonplace software applications, especially word processors and spreadsheets; properly create, edit, save, retrieve, and convert document files from/to different formats; comply with simple file-management systems, directory structures and drive configurations; and use e-mail and the internet. All translation and interpretation courses are taught in a PC laptop environment. PCs are strongly recommended over Macs since many applications used do not operate well or at all on the Mac platform.
