The purpose of this two to four week intensive study abroad course is to expose students to the dynamics of the geo- political environment of the European Union and provide hands-on experience with the translator’s role and responsibility as mediator and communicator in today’s European multi-lingual and multi-cultural societies. It is open to undergraduate and graduate students in any major who are interested in pursuing the Certificate in Translation Studies. This course will be of particular interest to students in foreign languages, cultures, and linguistics, political science, international studies, European Union Studies, law and business. The program consists of behind-the-scenes visits to international agencies and cultural sites relevant to language and culture studies. Countries visited include Belgium and France. This experience can lead to internships in the EU. Can be taken separately from the on campus preparatory course (TRST 400/temporary rubric LAS 490) offered in Spring 2012.
Estimated Program Cost: $2500
