About the Program

The Department of Synchronized Translation was founded with the goal of training translators for symposiums, seminars, congresses, and other events, both at the national and international level, who can provide translations of official appearances and speeches. Students spend the first two years of the four year program deepening their knowledge of languages. The final two years concentrate more on practical lessons that help students develop their professional skills. 

Goal

The main goal of the Kyrgyz-Turkish Program is to prepare competent and in-demand Kyrgyz-Turkish translators who can do consecutive, synchronized and written translations, and who can put the information they gain during their education to practical use.       

Opportunities for Students

As native speakers, students at the Kyrgyz-Turkish program have a unique chance to study languages. The students of the Kyrgyz-Turkish Program also have opportunities to intern in Turkey, which gives them the chance to strengthen their Turkish language skills and gain professional experience. 

Double Major           

Students can complete two programs at the Department of Synchronized Translation and complete two diplomas at the same time.
