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
with Hunter College. For specific questions, contact Professor Maria Cornelio firstname.lastname@example.org.
