Advising and Declaring

Benjamin Paloff, Translation Studies Advisor

The role of the Translation Studies advisor is:

- to provide information for students who are interested in pursuing the minor and assist students in declaring the minor.

- to meet at least once a term with students who are accepted to the minor to discuss progress on their approved course plan

- to review changes and petitions for approval in individual course plans to help coordinate plans for capstone translation projects.

Students interested in pursuing the minor should first make an appointment to meet with the Translation Studies advisor. The Translation Studies advisor will assist students in declaring the minor when they are ready. 

During their first meeting, the student and the Translation Studies advisor will devise a plan to satisfy the requirements. Any changes to the plan must be approved by the Translation Studies advisor, who will provide ongoing advising regarding course selection and planning for the capstone project. 

Advising appointments can be scheduled through the advising calendar. If no appointments are available, please send an email to that includes your availability and the purpose for the appointment.
