Spanish Translation and Interpretation Certificate

The Spanish Translation and Interpretation Certificate provides students with training in specified terminology and practical, hands-on experience in providing translation and interpretation services in the state of Washington, including medical and legal fields.

Dr. Kasselis with student Samantha Thurston

This certificate develops and augments the skills our students obtain in the Spanish major or minor programs. Two of the courses currently serve as electives for both programs. The certificate can be earned over the course of one year.
