Educating Professional Translators and Intrepreters
Founded in 1968, the Graduate School of Translation and Interpretation (GSTI) offers the following Master of Arts Degrees in Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Spanish:
Master of Arts in Translation (MAT)
Master of Arts in Translation and Interpretation (MATI)
Master of Arts in Conference Interpretation (MACI)
The faculty are all experienced translators and interpreters, dedicated to excellence and outstanding performance both as professors and working professionals. The small, select group of international linguists who make up the student body are distinguished by their impressive language skills, their intellectual curiosity, and their determination to meet the exceptional challenges of a demanding profession. Professors and students work closely together to achieve educational goals and professional standards in a supportive, collegial atmosphere. To accommodate the specific needs of individual language combinations and to stay abreast of developments in the profession, the sequential, modular curriculum of GSTI is as sensitive to theoretical and practical issues as it is to evolving market conditions. Students receive individual attention in small classes taught by native speakers of the GSTI languages.
GSTI students can earn any of the three Master of Arts degrees over a two-year period. Certain highly qualified students with significant work experience as translators or interpreters or degrees in translation or interpretation may qualify for entry into GSTI's one-year MA program.
Non-degree programs are offered in Spanish for court and medical interpreting; the teaching of translation and interpretation; and intensive preparation for translation and interpretation. A certificate of completion is awarded at the end of each course.
Interdisciplinary Multilingual Courses
The Monterey Institute of International Studies, with its emphasis on preparing innovative professionals to function effectively in crosscultural, multilingual environments, is an ideal setting for translator and interpreter training. Interdisciplinary, multilingual courses allow GSTI faculty and students to work with and learn from professors and students from the Institute's Graduate Schools of International Business, International Policy Studies, and Language and Educational Linguistics.
