The Development of Translation Studies Program for Bilingual Students.
Responding to the needs for professional bilingual linguists to work in private industry and government, the National Hispanic University (NHU) has developed a B.A. degree program in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Spanish and English translation. The program combines theoretical and applied course work in translation in the fields of business, science, education, law, international relations, medicine, and others. This paper describes the development of the translation studies program for bilingual students at the NHU. Specific sections address the following: the need for a translation degree program; the planning of the program; curriculum development; and the translation research and resource center at the university. The translation studies curriculum has served as a model for other institutions. (JL)
