Program Information

The Translation and Interpreting program at Rutgers was one of the first programs in this discipline in the United States.  During the last 20 years, graduates from the Spanish Translation and Interpretation program have achieved wide recognition within the field and hold leading positions in translation companies around the United States and Europe, including the largest ones such as Transperfect, Geneve Worldwide or Tipping Sprung, within state and federal courts and medical facilities. The program offers BA, MA and certificates in Spanish-English Translation and Interpreting.


Our program has an extensive network of translation and interpreting companies and agencies in which students complete their internships and practicums. Among others, we work closely with the Language Service Section of the New Jersey Administrative Office of the Courts (for Court Interpreting Certification), with the Interpreter Project at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (Medical Interpreting), Legal Services of New Jersey (Legal Translation) and with a large number of translation companies in the NJ-NY area.
