A new six-month certificate program at the Monterey Institute will train court, medical, legal and educational interpreters.
Students pursuing the Spanish Translation and Interpretation (T&I) degree track may want to add a 10-unit specialization focusing on legal, medical, educational, and social service interpreting to their studies.
About the Specialization
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, email Professor Holly Mikkelson.
