Developing a Humanities-Based Bilingual Professional Writing Certificate for Undergraduates

Creation at the University of Texas, El Paso, of an undergraduate bilingual professional writing certificate with a focus on translation theory and ethics.

The Undergraduate Bilingual Professional Writing Certificate Program project addresses the most essential dimensions of English-Spanish bilingual professional writing through a focus on ethics, translation, language, and rhetoric. The proposed project involves substantive curricular development and faculty training on the intrinsic role of ethics in professional writing and translation by focusing on three goals: To prepare English-Spanish bilingual students to write and translate ethically both Spanish and English, in print and online, in professional settings; to deepen faculty preparation in the teaching of ethics in professional writing and translation; to collaborate with community partners through professional writing and ethical translation workshops and student internships. The UBPWC Program is planned in two phases: Phase 1 focuses on offering the redesigned UPBPWC Program face-to-face while Phase 2 focuses on offering the program in full online format.
