TRIP 1-credit courses

"For the Fall 2019 semester, TRIP is offering two graduate language for reading and translation courses, one in French, and one in Spanish, each for 1-credit. We hope to offer German in the spring 2020 semester.

Note that students who take these courses will be graded for this one-credit course based on their course work. Students completing their departmental language requirement are expected to take a final exam with a faculty member, either as arranged by TRIP, or as students arrange with a faculty member in their home department. Students’ grade on this faculty-led exam will not impact their final grade in the course.

TRIP 525, French for Reading & Translation
            Friday, 1:30-2:30 pm, FA 241

TRIP 535, Spanish for Reading & Translation
            Friday, 2:40-3:40 pm, FA 241

Course Description:
This course is intended for master’s and doctoral students whose department requires they pass a written foreign language exam, frequently a translation exam, to advance in their program. Students work independently and in class meetings to obtain high-level reading and translation ability that serves them in their research. While this class may prepare students for department exams, it is separate from, and does not take the place of these exams."

If you still need to satisfy the SPEL graduate language requirement, these courses may be exactly what you need.
