The Language and Diplomacy MA Concentration

The structure of the MA Language and Diplomacy concentration is as follows. Students will be able to select 4 courses from 1. target language courses, and 2. courses in translation and interpretation.

At least two of the concentration courses must be in a target language.

Embedded in this concentration is the following possibility:

  • If students choose three of their courses in Translation and Interpreting, they’ll have earned the Graduate Certificate in Translation and Interpreting after taking the two-credit hour “TIC” practicum (MOL 479).

Students fulfilling the requirements of this concentration have the possibility of choosing to take courses in more than one language, but it is more likely that they will focus on one language. Students selecting this concentration for their MA in Applied Diplomacy are expected to work closely with an advisor, in order to insure that their course selections both fulfill the requirements of the concentration and are best tailored to fit with their vocational trajectory.
