Overview of Graduate College Admissions & Requirements

Students completing the 16-hour Graduate Minor in Translation and Interpreting Studies will have a firm grasp of the theoretical concepts and debates in the Translation and Interpreting field, as well as an exposure to the conventions of the profession and a solid basis for any further desired professional preparation. The Minor allows UIUC graduate students to choose to gain a wider understanding of the general field's practices and theories by taking elective courses in more than one area; or to develop more in-depth expertise by taking both elective courses in the same subfield. In order to enroll in the Graduate Minor, you must have completed at least six college-level semesters of study in a language other than English; or show evidence of equivalent competence.
