A new six-month certificate program at the Monterey Institute will train court, medical, legal and educational interpreters.
Students pursuing the Spanish T&I degree track may want to add a 10-unit specialization focusing on legal, medical, educational, and social service interpreting to their studies.
This specialization is designed to complement the T&I degree track with professional and linguistic knowledge needed for the fields of legal, medical, social service and educational interpreting. Courses are offered during the J-term (January) and during an intensive 6-week summer session, culminating in preparation for the court and medical certification exams.
To enroll in the specialization, please contact Professor Holly Mikkelson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The annual Fall Forum is both organized and interpreted by our Interpretation students.
The Fall Forum provides the MIIS community with a setting for discussion of relevant issues of our time. This exciting event offers our second-year interpretation students the unique opportunity to perform consecutive interpretation in a professional environment; it also gives students in other academic programs the chance to see interpreters at work and to consider how they might work effectively with an interpreter.
