Jose Gomez is a first-year student in the Graduate Studies in Interpreting and Translation program offered by the Department of Communication at UMD College Park. He earned his B.A. degree in Translation and Interpreting from the Autonomous University of Barcelona and his M.A. degree in Intercultural Communication from University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). Now, his passion for languages and for enhancing communication as well as mutual, global understanding has become his driving force for pursuing an MPS in Conference Interpreting. Jose has worked as an English teacher in Spain and as a Spanish teacher in the U.S., so he is aware of some of the cultural differences that inevitably affect communication between interactants from different regions in the world. He currently holds the position of Graduate Assistant for the Oral Communication Program.
