A new six-month certificate program at the Monterey Institute will train court, medical, legal and educational interpreters.
Students pursuing degrees in the Spanish Translation and Interpretation program 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 Spanish TILM degrees with professional and linguistic knowledge needed for the fields of legal, medical, social service and educational interpreting. Online courses are offered during the Fall and J-term (January) and then during an intensive on-site 6-week summer session, culminating in preparation for the court and medical certification exams.
To enroll in the specialization, email Professor Holly Mikkelson.
