You may be on your way to earning a certificate in Translation & Intercultural Communication!

The certificate program in Translation & Intercultural Communication (PTIC) provides an opportunity to all Princeton students to delve deeper into the theory and practice of translation.

To obtain a certificate, students must complete the normal requirements in their major department as well as the following requirements:

  • The Program’s two core courses: TRA 200 Thinking Translation: Language Transfer and Cultural Communication and TRA 400 Translation, Migration, Culture.
  • Four courses at the 200 level or above from at least two of the following three categories:
    a) Upper-level courses focusing on translation into and/or from a foreign language
    b) Courses that contribute to an understanding of some aspect of translation
    c) Any course listed or cross-listed by the PTIC (excluding TRA 200 and 400)
  • Two courses at the 200 level or above in a language other than English.
  • International Experience.  Students should spend time (six or more weeks) in a Princeton-approved course of study or internship in an area where the chosen non-English language of proficiency is spoken.  (Waived for Class of ’22).
  • Independent Work is fulfilled with a junior paper or senior thesis that incorporates issues of translation in one or more of its several senses.  In departments where this option presents a difficulty, a student may petition to have another piece of independent work meet this requirement.
