Following La Salle University’s general admissions standards for graduate programs in liberal arts, candidates for the M.A. in Translation and Interpretation: English-Spanish/Spanish-English, must meet the following minimum requirements:
It is preferable (but not required) that candidates for admission to the M.A. in Translation and Interpretation have done some kind of work, voluntary or compensated, in a setting involving intercultural interaction. Typical kinds of experience are community-oriented outreach, hospital volunteering, undergraduate internship at a place where Spanish is spoken or written as part of the normal routine, part/full time work in a school, business, law firm or clinic/hospital where Spanish was used routinely by the applicant.
The program is also intended to serve working professionals who may have already had formal experience in one of the areas of specialization (legal, healthcare and business Spanish). For these individuals the letters of recommendation required should come from past or present employers.
