Course Description

Learn more about the field of Interpreting with a focus on three specialty areas. If you are fluent in English and either Chinese (Mandarin), Portuguese, or Spanish, you may want to pursue a career as a bi-lingual professional.  The session will include faculty from the three languages, and we'll discuss Boston University's language-paired program design.  You'll also be able to learn about the specialty areas of Community, Legal, and Medical interpreting.

Students who are accepted into the program need to demonstrate fluency in both languages with a test ($50) and submission of the Interpreter Program Application.

Interpreter Studies at Boston University recruits students between May and August each year for a cohort class that begins in September.  Information sessions are held in May and June.  Testing dates are held each month during this period.  Please send in an inquiry to our office, and we'll be able to send you information when we begin recruiting for the next cohort class.
