Graduate students could petition to substitute an appropriate graduate course from Modern and Classical Languages or Hispanic Studies for one of the three required courses.
A student seeking the certificate will produce a substantial translation under the direction of a faculty member. In this way, students who receive a certificate in Translation Studies will demonstrate knowledge in the theory and skill in the practice of literary translation.
Graduate students in the Departments of Hispanic Studies and Modern and Classical Languages would be eligible to work toward a certificate in Translation Studies. These students would fulfill the same requirements as graduate students in the Department of English.
Courses in translation studies are open to all graduate students, not only those who are working toward the Certificate in Translation Studies.
