Interpreting and Translation
Plan of Study: GC - Translation
The GC-Translation is a 21-credit graduate program designed to be completed in nine months of full-time enrollment. Part-time enrollment is welcome. The program features seminar-style, face-to-face learning. Classes meet at the College Park campus. Instruction is provided by university faculty and experts in the field.
Below is a sample plan of study. Students should use this as a guide to develop a plan with the program director. The program uses the semester academic calendar. Full-time students enroll in a mix of required and elective courses for a total of 10-11 credits in both the fall and spring semesters (16-weeks).
Specific class meeting information (days and time) is posted on UMD’s interactive web service services, Testudo. Once on that site, select “Schedule of Classes,” then the term/year. Courses are listed by academic unit.
