Graduate certificate: literary translation

The Certificate in Literary Translation complements students' primary graduate training to allow them to:

  • become more firmly grounded in comparative literature or contemporary international writing,
  • take advantage of the synergy between creative writing and literary translation as part of their personal writing life, and
  • develop stronger competencies in translation as a method of scholarly inquiry and pedagogy.

Students will benefit from the creative commons established when translators, poets, fiction and nonfiction writers, playwrights, and literary scholars work together for a shared purpose.

The Certificate in Literary Translation is administered by the Division of World Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
