About the Program
TRIP was founded in 1971 to promote the study of translation at SUNY Binghamton. TRIP offers the following degree programs: a PhD in Translation Studies, a Graduate Certificate in Translation, and an undergraduate Minor in Translation Studies. It collaborates with various Master?s programs in Arts and Sciences, MASS in the College of Community and Professional Affairs, as well as with several doctoral degrees that can also focus in Translation Studies, such as the ones offered by Comparative Literature, English, and Philosophy Interpretation and Culture (PIC).
Graduate Certificate in Translation
The TRIP Certificate in translation is a graduate program that provides students with practical training and introduces them to the formal study of translation. It may be taken as a separate track or in conjunction with other BU master?s degree programs such as those of Comparative Literature (Plan C), Romance Languages, English, Human Development, as well as the doctoral programs of Comparative Literature and PIC (Philosophy, Interpretation, and Culture).
TRIP has been able to offer translation practice from Spanish and French on a regular basis. Depending on need and availability, translation instruction involving other source languages (Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Portuguese, German, Korean, and Russian) may be offered. Those interested in languages other than Spanish and French are advised to contact the TRIP Co-directors to check whether instruction is available in a given semester.
