Nazanin Kaussari, MA student in the Interpreting and Translations Studies Program (ITS) at Wake Forest, has been awarded the prestigious Boren Fellowship. Ms. Kaussari was chosen from a very select group of graduate students to pursue her studies in Farsi. In August she will be traveling to Georgetown University to complete 5 weeks of advanced study at the Persian Language Institute and then will move on to the capital of Tajikistan, Dushanbe, to continue her intensive language and cultural immersion studies for nine more months.
As part of their applied research project, students prepared posters and a 15 minute presentation that were presented this afternoon in a session open to the public and attended by faculty, students, family and friends.
Invited experts and WF professors convened to discuss how languages combined with other disciplines can be the gateway to jobs in various industries: video games, finances, data analytics, healthcare and more.
