This program is
designed to allow LaGuardia students to earn 60 credits in core academic
foundations which meet all lower division requirements for candidates of the BA
program at Hunter College
The Spanish-English Translation major, housed in the Department
of Education and Language Acquisition, is fully articulated with Hunter
College. Students can earn an Associate of Arts (AA) degree at LaGuardia, and
continue working toward a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Spanish-English and
English-Spanish Translation at Hunter College. This program is designed to
allow LaGuardia students to earn 60 credits in core academic foundations which
meet all lower division requirements for candidates of the BA program at Hunter
College. Students are encouraged to complete the BA degree since it opens many
career opportunities in translation and interpretation in the court system,
hospitals, state and municipal agencies, corporations, and non-profit
Students enrolled in the Spanish-English Translation program
will be able to complete internships at a range of government agencies and
nonprofit organizations available through the Cooperative Education Department
at LaGuardia. These work experiences enable the student to bridge the gap
between classroom theory and practical applications in the field of translation
and interpretation providing valuable experience for choosing a career and
subsequent full-time employment.
Students entering the Spanish-English Translation program will
not receive credit for prior knowledge of Spanish. Students who need additional
skill development in reading, writing, mathematics, and communication will be
required to take basic skills and/or ESL courses. These courses are not listed
in the curriculum. Scores on the College placement test determine the
particular courses students must successfully complete.
LaGuardia’s Spanish-English Translation program is articulated
