Course content

In the age of globalisation, media communication has become increasingly multilingual and multimodal. The rising need for translation is marked by a particular surge in demand for skills in translating for different media forms.

The MA Mass Media Translation programme aims to provide suitably qualified undergraduates an opportunity to procure a deeper understanding of mass media translation between English and Chinese, at both theoretical and practical levels, and to produce graduates capable of operating professionally and reflectively in this rapidly developing media translation environment.

The programme is intended for those who have good bilingual proficiency and are interested in media translation, for translation practitioners who want to gain a deeper understanding of media translation, and for others who wish to develop and extend their professional skills in media translation and bilingual media communication. It is also a stepping stone for any individual wanting to undertake a research degree in translation studies and media translation in particular.
