MFA in Translation at Mills College

New Program: MFA in Translation
Mills College
Oakland California

Mills College’s new, low-residency, MFA in Translation Program Starts this June. This program is the first of its kind in the San Francisco Bay area. Rigorous and affordable, the MFA in Translation offers the opportunity to work one on one with renowned translators as mentors. Although the focus is literary translation, a semester on Practical Translation is offered that introduces students to current technology and opportunities in other translation fields such medical, legal, business, diplomatic and others.

Each residency is celebrated with a weekend Translation Festival that brings students and different language communities together. This year’s summer residency runs from June 13 to 20, and the Translation Festival will take place on the final weekend. Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis.
