The demand for advanced study in translation and interpreting is growing. The trend towards globalization is continuing to open up new markets, providing multilingual job opportunities for translation professionals in numerous fields. Businesses and governments are increasingly looking to hire professionals with cross-cultural communication skills as well as experience in translation and interpreting.
At the UMass Translation Center, we work closely with Comparative Literature, which offers a Master of Arts in Translation and Interpreting Studies, Translation and Interpreting Certificate Program as well as Graduate and Undergraduate classes in translation and interpreting.
