Course content

The MA Translation Studies caters for students with an interest in translation studies in all its aspects (translation, interpreting, audiovisual translation, intermodal translation) rather than those with a more targeted professional orientation.

The programme provides a particular focus for research-oriented applicants who have set out with a clear goal of moving from Masters to PhD in Translation Studies. It is also of interest to those who are attracted by the more reflective perspective of translation studies as an academic discipline rather than by translation, subtitling or interpreting practice.
