Want a career as an interpreter?
In the Interpreting major at Auckland University of Technology, you learn to recognize cross-cultural implications for interpreting and the ethical and professional responsibilities of an interpreter.
Interpreting is so much more than just repeating someone’s words in a different language.
A good interpreter can understand nuances and cultural appropriateness, and convey levels of formality across a range of professions and industries.
The challenge is to do justice to every situation.
You practice interpreting consecutively and simultaneously between English and another language.
You explore the effects of intonation and the use of idioms in spoken English.
Throughout your studies, you also become familiar with interpreting for legal, healthcare, or business settings.
These skills will serve you well in increasingly multicultural local and global communities. Interpreting is also available as a minor.
Workplace experience is an important part of your degree, and the Work Integrated Learning course is the final part of your degree.
This is a supervised work placement related to your major(s), for an organization of your choice.
It's a great way to get industry experience while still being able to get feedback from AUT lecturers, and for many of AUT's students, this workplace experience also leads to a job offer.
You could also take the Foundations in Research course to prepare you for postgraduate study.
