B.S. in Russian Translation
The Bachelor of Science in Russian Translation is a pre-professional degree designed for students to develop the skills needed to become working translators.
It also introduces the rudiments of translation theory as it applies to the actual practice of translation. Graduates may pursue a professional degree in translation or go on to work for government, business or industry, for translation agencies or as freelance translators. Majors meet requirements designed to ensure competence in Russian and take five core courses in translation during the junior and senior years. The major features a 33-credit subject area specialty requirement, which enables translation students to acquire a level of expertise in a specific field in which they can specialize as translators. Translation majors are strongly encouraged to undertake study in a country where Russian is spoken.
