The Spanish Translation Institute begins with East Carolina's first summer session, from May 16-June 21, and continues through the second summer session, from June 22-July 28.
During the first summer session, classes will meet every weekday evening from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., with a rest break in the middle. (Meeting times for the second summer session will be determines during the first summer session.) You will be expected to come to class having prepared texts for translation and also submit several translations for assessment, in addition to taking exams.
The first course will be covered during the first half of summer session one and the second in the second half. A similar pattern applies for the other two courses in summer session two.
If you complete the program and its exams with a high standard of performance, you have the opportunity to earn East Carolina's Certificate in Spanish Translation. The certificate will say that you are judged to be a capable translator to or from Spanish, or both.
Note: Completing the institute satisfactorily does not entitle you to automatic certification. East Carolina University faculty will evaluate your performance during the institute's coursework and exams to determine whether certification will be awarded. All students, however, will receive credit for the courses completed. The opportunity to be evaluated for certificate purposes will present itself periodically, and if you are not initially awarded the certificate, you may be reexamined at another time.
