Program Description

Full Description

The Bachelor of Science degree in Translation is a pre-professional program designed for students who are seeking the more professional focus and interdisciplinary breadth that the B.S. degree offers with the inclusion of a minor, double major or certificate to develop the skills needed to translate in a professional setting. It introduces the basics of translation theory as it applies to the actual practice of translation.

The requirement of a minor, certificate or second major enables students to acquire a level of expertise in a specific field in which they can specialize as translators. This degree also enables students to have a major and a minor that make them more competitive and prepares them for a sector that the U.S. Department of Labor projects as one of the fastest-growing sectors globally. Translation majors are strongly encouraged to undertake study in a country where their language concentration is spoken so that they can achieve the necessary proficiency level. Skills necessary include an excellent command of the source language, an excellent command of the target language, cultural knowledge, specialist knowledge, research competence, terminological competence, technological competence, an understanding of the translation industry and transfer competence.

Graduates may enter graduate programs in translation (the professional degree) or go on to work for government, business or industry, for translation agencies or as freelance translators.

The Translation major comprises the following concentrations:

  • Arabic
  • French
  • German
  • Russian - Applications to the Russian concentration are not being accepted at this time.
  • Spanish

Many study abroad opportunities exist, including:

  • France: Université Michel de Montaigne Bordeaux III, Bordeaux (all class standings, all majors/minors)
  • Germany: Julius-Maximilian-Universität Würzburg, Würzbug (all class standings, all majors/minors)
  • Germany: Universität Leipzig, Leipzig (intermediate German language proficiency required)

Graduation Requirements

  • Students are expected to start in a course appropriate to their language proficiency level. Students lacking in sufficient proficiency to take the first concentration course can reach it by taking courses in the prerequisite sequence based on their placement score and high school training. One or more of the prerequisites may be waived with demonstrated proficiency through the Kent State placement test, AP, CLEP, International Baccalaureate, official ACTFL Proficiency Rating or another department-approved assessment.
  • Students who fulfill the college language requirement in fewer than 8 credit hours as a result of proficiency, will complete remaining hours with general electives. Completion of first junior-level course completes the College of Arts and Sciences foreign language requirements.

Program Note

  • Some courses in the Department of Modern and Classical Language Studies are offered on a rotating basis, and course availability may change at any time. Please see the program coordinator or your academic advisor for course planning.

Foreign Language College Requirement, B.S.

  • Students pursuing the Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Arts and Sciences must complete 8 credit hours of foreign language.
  • The Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Science is exempt from this requirement.2
  • Minimum Elementary I and II of the same language
1

All students with prior foreign language experience should take the foreign language placement test to determine the appropriate level at which to start. Some students may start beyond the Elementary I level and will complete the requirement with fewer credit hours and fewer courses. This may be accomplished by (1) passing a course beyond Elementary I through Intermediate II level; (2) receiving credit through one of the alternative credit programs offered by Kent State University; or (3) demonstrating language proficiency comparable to Elementary II of a foreign language. When students complete the requirement with fewer than 8 credit hours and two courses, they will complete remaining credit hours with general electives.

2

The Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Science exemption exists under another college policy (Three-Plus-One Programs).
