Translation Studies Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs, Minors and Certificates

Graduate students intending to complete a certificate in Translation Studies must be admitted to a USC graduate or professional program. While undertaking course work for an MA, PhD or other graduate degree, students may earn a certificate in Translation Studies, which confirms advanced competence in inter-linguistic and cross-cultural communication.

To earn the certificate, students must take four courses (12 units), including a course on the theory and philosophy of translation, two elective courses in a variety of linguistic, literary and cultural traditions, and a hands-on workshop in literary translation that will serve as the capstone experience to the graduate certificate. The capstone will be offered through the Department of Comparative Literature, as well as its affiliate language and literature departments.
