Elizabeth Hsu, MS in Translation and Interpreting Graduate, Selected as 2023 Flag Bearer

Elizabeth Hsu has been selected as flag bearer for the NYU SPS MS in Translation and Interpreting (MSTI) program. She received this honor from the faculty in recognition of her outstanding academic performance and active engagement.

Elizabeth’s dedication to her studies and the MSTI program made an impact on her peers and faculty alike. “I have helped advise Elizabeth on her thesis paper for the last three months, and during that time, I've learned more from her than she's learned from me. Her intimate knowledge of translation theory and grammatical and syntactical errors is extremely impressive, and her passion for linguistics is infectious,” writes Tim Durgin, her thesis advisor. 

Expressing excitement about this honor, Elizabeth also dedicates this milestone to the impact the NYU SPS translation and interpreting community has had on her: “This is an award that should be shared with the entire graduating class of the MSTI program in 2023. I would not have gotten here without the support from all of my professors, advisors, and colleagues, and I am grateful for everything they have taught me throughout this program. This degree embodies not only all that I've learned and gained from the MSTI program but also serves as a reminder that there is always something new to learn beyond the campus. Receiving a Master's degree may be the finish line for this program, but it is not the end of my career or education as a language professional.”

Please join us in congratulating Elizabeth on this wonderful achievement!
