Welcome to the Program in Translation and Intercultural Communication
The Program in Translation and Intercultural Communication (PTIC) offers a diverse curriculum that allows undergraduates to develop their understanding of translation issues from varied perspectives. Students develop skills in language use and an understanding of the complexity of communicating across cultures, nations, and linguistic borders. Navigate this Web site with the buttons to the left to learn more about the program and the requirements for an undergraduate Certificate of Proficiency.
WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 11--Lecture by John Nathan. Nathan is one of the most distinguished contemporary translators of modern Japanese literature, including works by Mishima and Kenzaburo Oe.
The Program in Translation and Intercultural Communication provides funding for senior thesis research and travel--including summer travel grants for rising seniors and fall break travel grants for seniors, summer study abroad (to obtain the international experience required for the certificate), and pre-approved independent projects. This funding is available to undergraduates who are enrolled in the certificate program and who have taken the first core course, TRA 200/COM 209 Thinking Translation: Language and Transfer & Cultural Communication.
PTIC funding may be used only to offset allowable expenses for proposed air and ground travel (coach class only), room, and board. No equipment may be purchased with PTIC funds, and no other expenditures can be covered under these grants.
Please search opportunities and apply through the Student Activity Funding Engine at www.princeton.edu/SAFE.
