THE NEW MASTER OF CONFERENCE INTERPRETING (MCI) at Glendon seeks to prepare a new generation of skilled and knowledgeable professionals for a rewarding career in this dynamic, fast-paced field.
The demand for qualified conference interpreters is at an all-time high, and is only expected to grow. It is a discipline that can take you from the boardrooms on Toronto’s Bay Street, and the corridors of power in Ottawa to other important world cities beyond Canada’s borders. It may lead to a rewarding career working for a national government or for an international organization, for example, or a lucrative one in the private sector. In addition, graduates of the MCI program may elect to enjoy the flexibility of a busy freelance career that this in-demand field readily affords.
As home to the Centre of Excellence for French-language and Bilingual Postsecondary Education, and with a venerated tradition in languages and liberal arts, Glendon is the ideal environment for this two-year intensive program. Recent grants and funding have resulted in new conference facilities, fully equipped for simultaneous interpreting. As well, numerous internship and networking opportunities mean that graduates of the MCI program will be very well positioned to launch an exciting career – at home or abroad – within unlimited areas of interest.
