RegisterRequest Information

There is a growing need today for analytic linguists who are trained to transcribe, translate and interpret foreign language conversations for federal and local law enforcement agencies that investigate crimes ranging from terrorism and gang activity to drug smuggling and human trafficking. CAPE’s fully online Professional Analytic Linguist and Advanced Professional Analytic Linguist  certificate courses are open to current Montclair State multilingual students; graduates holding degrees in languages, justice studies, and political science; and law enforcement professionals looking to enter and succeed in a dynamic field. Students who successfully complete the program and receive either of these certifications are eligible to apply to take a rigorous, comprehensive, 8-hour exam which, if they pass, will earn them the prestigious, trademarked designation of Certified Analytic Linguist Professional™ (CALP).
