Description of the Program
The curriculum for the CII (Certificate in Interpretation) is designed to address three of the main environments where interpretation (English-Spanish and Spanish-English) is currently needed, and will be more intensely needed in the future: these are legal, healthcare, and business environments. In addition, governing interpretation principles are also studied for application to language environments covered and not covered by the program.
The program consists of seven (3 credits each) courses to be taken in a predetermined fashion. Therefore, a total of 21 credits is required to complete the certificate.
All courses are offered in the evenings. All courses (fall and spring) require a minimum of three hours of class time per week. The fall and spring semesters have a 14-week duration. Summer sessions have a 5.5-week duration and require a minimum of six hours of class time per week.
