Becoming a student at Evergreen Valley College
More information about
Interested students should submit an application so they can be notified when the next group of students will begin the Translation & Interpreting program sequence. This date will depend on the number of interested students and the availability of instructors.
The Translation and Interpreting Program provides a favorable learning environment that will equip the bilingual learner with the theoretical and practical skills and tools to begin the lifelong learning process as a translator and/or interpreter. This certificate may be completed in 3 semesters. Classes are usually offered on weekday evenings and Saturdays.
Progression in the T&I program requires taking some courses in a specific sequence. Students must achieve “C” or higher in order to continue. If a student does not pass a course, it may be repeated the following year, dependent upon faculty recommendation and space availability.
