Translation and Interpretation Program
Students with exceptional Spanish language skills (C1 or above) have the opportunity to directly enroll in a special semester program of study at the University of Granada’s Faculty of Translation and Interpretation, commonly referred to as “Traductores.” Traductores offers the largest array of linguistic offerings of any university in Spain and is renowned for its rigor in preparing students to translate and interpret at a professional level. Serious students of language will have an opportunity to immerse themselves in specialized courses that will significantly improve their language communication skills and give them a competitive advantage for career positions that require highly-honed second language proficiency.
Upon arrival, students participate in a mandatory customized course at the University of Granada’s Center for Modern Languages (CLM), which will prepare them for the challenges of undertaking academic study in a university system and academic culture entirely different to those which they have experienced at home. The 60-hour class continues to meet periodically throughout the semester providing the students with academic support and tutoring.
Students also undertake their studies at Traductores, enrolling in a course load equivalent to 24-30 European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) – typically four to five classes.
Examples of courses include:
Spanish Language (for High Advanced/Native Speakers)
Theory and Practice in Translation (Traductología)
Specialized English-Spanish Translation
Careers in Translation and Interpretation
Interpretation in the Public Sector
Interpretation in Commerce and Tourism
Translation in Science and Technology
Computer Technology Tools for Translation and Interpretation
