Literary Translation

The Graduate Certificate in Literary Translation offers training in a wide range of applied and cross-cultural theoretical approaches to translation, while providing a professional toolset for creating publishable translations and research articles. The certificate is designed to provide both hands-on, practical experience, and a strong theoretical foundation in what has become one of the most globally relevant fields of the twenty-first century. The certificate can be earned by students enrolled in a University of Connecticut Graduate Degree Program, or as a stand-alone certificate for those who already possess an undergraduate degree. Total course requirement is 12 credits.

Required courses: TRST 5010, 5011, and 5020.

Elective course: one course at the 5000/6000-level from one of the foreign language literatures offered by the department of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages, or one of the Creative Writing or Literature courses offered by the English Department. Students may choose an elective course from another graduate department at UConn with the approval of the Director of the Program in Literary Translation.

This certificate is offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
