Students will speak, listen, read, and write Spanish at the ACTFL advanced level or higher (see the ACTFL guidelines here).
Students will identify cultural practices (e.g., customs and traditions) and cultural products (e.g., literatures, arts, institutions, and individuals) from the Spanish-speaking world, place them in their historical, political, and social contexts, and interpret the unique perspectives on human experience that they reveal.
Critical Thinking and Expression
Students will analyze language, literary texts, and other cultural products and practices using sound thinking and clear expression.
Professional Translation Skills
Demonstrate professional translation skills by doing the following: (1) understanding and properly applying the tools of critical analysis; (2) employing research tools to investigate terminology and styles appropriate for different text types.
Upon completion of the program, students will have developed the necessary translation competence for entry-level employment or internship positions in the language industry.
