Colleges of Arts and Sciences
The department offers teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and tuition waivers. An assistantship requires duties involving approximately 20 hours of work per week, and tuition is waived. A tuition waiver requires no duties. Teaching assistants work under the supervision of a faculty member and assist with instruction. Research assistants work on extramurally funded research projects under the supervision of a faculty member.

The department offers a limited number of assistantships each semester, and most are teaching assistantships. Teaching assistantships are awarded to those applicants who can best support the instructional program. These applicants typically have an undergraduate degree in computer science and a good command of English, equivalent to a TOEFL score of 600. Research assistant-ships are awarded to those applicants who can best assist faculty members with their research projects.

Applicants accepted for admission may be eligible for partial financial aid in the form of a tuition waiver. Prior to submitting a tuition waiver application form, foreign applicants must send TOEFL scores and documentation of financial support for expenses other than tuition to the Graduate Division admissions office.

Graduates of the master’s program have secured programming, systems analysis, and other technical positions in industry, business, and government. Some have applied their technical skills to other careers, while others have pursued doctoral studies in computer science.

Requirements

Plan A (thesis) and Plan B (non-thesis) are available. A minimum of 30 credit hours is required under both plans. Student programs must be approved by an adviser. A minimum B average must be maintained in all courses. The program or previous study must include the following:

1. ICS 141, 311, 312, 313, 321, and 331; two of ICS 411, 412, 413, and 414; and ICS 442 or 471; or equivalent courses;

2. At least six ICS courses numbered 600 to 692 including two in decade 1 (i.e., numbered 610-619);

3. Plan A: thesis taken as ICS 700; Plan B: one ICS course numbered 600-699 (a substitution is permitted with written approval of adviser) and a final project (based on prior graduate-level course work; computer programming projects must be accompanied by a written report) taken as ICS 699 for at least 3 credits at the end of the student’s program of study; and

4. ICS 690 (taken for CR/NC), which does not count toward the 30-credit-hour minimum.

The administrative procedures for the program include the following rules:

1. The student must meet with his or her adviser during the first semester. Deficiencies that must be remedied are indicated at this time.

2. The student is admitted to candidacy following completion of at least 12 credit hours of courses applicable to the degree or after two semesters. After being admitted to candidacy, the student must file a degree plan prior to registering for the final semester; a student selecting Plan A must choose a thesis topic within one semester.

3. All changes in the degree plan must be approved in writing by the adviser before the diploma application is filed. At the beginning of the semester of expected graduation, the student must have a departmental “goldenrod” form signed by his or her adviser.

The Academic Program

Interpretation and translation (IT) is the study of appropriateness in interlingual and cross-cultural communication. Translation students focus on written work. They acquire basic knowledge of computer-assisted tools and programs that facilitate translation, as well as an understanding of analytical and research techniques needed for translating written texts. Interpretation students focus on oral work. They learn the techniques needed to facilitate interpersonal, interlingual oral communication. Both fields of study emphasize sociolinguistic and communication skills and techniques needed to facilitate cultural, scientific, and technical exchanges in cross-cultural and multinational settings. Students may also focus on both fields of study by following, concurrently or sequentially, both programs of study.

The Center for Interpretation and Translation Studies was established at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa within the College of Languages, Linguistics and Literature in 1988. The center’s primary goal is to provide, through theoretically based academic programs, basic training in interpretation and nonfiction translation. Additional objectives of the center include developing of an interdisciplinary research program and serving the community as a clearinghouse for information on professional resources and practices. It also aims to provide the community at large with a broad range of educational opportunities by sponsoring lectures, seminars, and workshops.
