Certificate in Spanish/English Interpretation
This program is designed to develop the interpreting skills for service in the courts, state agencies, and in the medical and private sectors. It is specifically designed to prepare participants to pass the state certification examinations.
Faculty members are all adjunct instructors who are state court interpreters.
Certified Spanish/English interpreters are in heavy demand in the courts and administrative agencies at the county, state, and federal levels. Interpreters are self-employed and contract with courts and agencies for specific cases. In addition, law firms and corporations often use certified interpreters on a freelance basis. Interpreters work either as court employees or freelance for the state courts, state agencies, interpreting agencies and health organizations.
Admission requirements are 56 units of prior semester units (B.A. preferred) and a passing score in the SFSU Bilingual Entrance Exam.
There are six core courses and two elective courses. For complete course descriptions, contact the program coordinator or go to www.cel.sfsu/interpretation.
