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 (minimum of 12 units). Of these, two are required: the theory and philosophy of translation (COLT 510 ), and the workshop in literary translation that will serve as the capstone experience (COLT 519 ). In addition, students will choose two elective courses under the rubric of linguistic, literary and cultural traditions. Electives must focus fully or partially on translation and may be taken in any department, including comparative literature.  Possible electives include COLT 511 , COLT 512 , or any graduate course from any departments or programs. Electives need to be approved by the director of the certificate.


Electives in Linguistic, Literary and Cultural Traditions

Two elective courses are required for certificate completion and may be taken in any department.  The courses listed below are approved to count toward the certificate.  Courses outside of those listed are subject to review and approval by the certificate program director prior to the application toward the certificate.
