DePaul’s Translator and Interpreter Corps (TIC) is a unique opportunity for students to gain experience with the professional world of translation and interpretation while having access to DePaul resources such as translation and interpreting courses, faculty with experience and expertise in the field, and the
Tutoring & Language Learning Center. This exposure puts students at a significant advantage upon completion of their degree, as their TIC experience provides them with awareness of the skills needed, the processes involved, and the working conditions of the translation and interpreting field.
