There are various types of translating that one can do. The spectrum ranges from literary translation to technical translation. Unfortunately, Mount Holyoke College does not offer a major/minor for Translation but there are certain classes students can take through the Five College Consortium.
The University of Massachusetts (UMASS) offers various Translation and Interpretation courses for undergraduate and graduate students. They also have special certificates for students interested in Translation/Interpretation.
Outside of Mount Holyoke College and the Five College Consortium students can find translating information by joining the American Translators Association. This Association is for people interested in becoming a Professional Translator. The website offers resources and information for prospective translators/interpreters. Through this website students can also find out about the annual conferences hosted by ATA and perhaps attend them.
Here's a clip from the American Translators Association's 54th conference in San Antonio, Texas:
