The National Hispanic University has a long-established Translation and Interpretation Program designed to train bilingual students to a high level of professional competence in the arts of translation and interpretation across different fields. Our program offers high-level instruction and professional preparation from instructors who are active professionals in the field.
The program, which you can take on campus, allows its graduates to have a certificate for potential employers confirming their bilingual proficiency, cultural understanding, theoretical knowledge, and translation and interpretation skills. Graduates of our program go on to own and operate their own translation and interpretation service companies, freelance, work for private companies or work within the public sector for hospitals, courts of law (after they pass the state/federal certification), and school districts.
Translation and Interpretation Certificate
The certificate consists of a coherent set of theoretical and applied courses that provide you with the foundations to be successful in your career as a Translator or Interpreter. The program provides specialty in both translation and interpretation skills and allows graduates to have skills with medical, legal, business, technology-related translation assignments. Program students must already demonstrate advanced level of bilingual competency in Spanish and English to be admitted.
PLEASE NOTE: The National Hispanic University was approved to participate in a U.S. Department of Education experiment that will randomly select eligible students enrolled in the Translation and Interpretation certificate program to receive a Pell Grant. Known as the Experimental Sites Initiative (ESI) Federal Pell Grant Program, participating institutions, like NHU, will award a limited amount of Pell Grant dollars to students eligible to receive Pell Grants. The purpose is to help the federal government determine if it should make changes to the Pell Grant Program's eligibility requirements (e.g., allowing students with bachelor's degrees to receive a Pell Grant for enrollment in short-term vocational programs or allowing very short-term training programs to be Pell Grant eligible). NHU will seek consent from eligible students prior to participation in the random lottery selection process.
