MA TRANSLATION

INTERESTED IN A CAREER IN TRANSLATION?

 
The Masters degree in Translation has been designed to provide you with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the discipline of translation to enable you to develop the skills of a professional translator.  This postgraduate degree pathway provides you with advanced expertise in your principal non-native language and to give you opportunities for further language- training and professional practice. The programme also includes specialist training in translation technologies.
 
The degree is structured in such a way that students can deepen their understanding of key aspects of translation theory and/or choose to concentrate on more practice- based activities. Delivered through a combination of seminars, workshops, guided private study, a programme of visiting speakers and appropriate professional practice, the structure of the degree will enable students to work towards both of these objectives, or to focus more intensively on one of them.
 
In addition to the elements for which they are enrolled, students are encouraged to audit as many other elements of the programme as they wish.
