Course content

The MA in Translation and Adaptation Studies offers a comprehensive programme for students to explore a broad range of theories and practices within these two distinct but related fields. Its combined focus on translation and adaptation – unique within the UK – widens the scope of Translation Studies to address movement not only between languages but also between different media, creating an opportunity for innovative work within these fields. It is also a thoroughly global programme: the teaching staff, which includes prizewinning translators, offer expertise in theories and practices of translation from all over the world, including China and the Middle East, and linguistic expertise in Arabic and Chinese as well as Catalan, French, Spanish, German, Russian, and Portuguese. Depending on staff availability, we may additionally offer linguistic expertise in Hindi and Urdu.
