Master of Arts Translation and Interpreting Studies
This course provides both practical and theoretical training in interpreting and translation. It aims to equip students with knowledge of the theoretical aspects that underpin interpreting and translation, including linguistics, and with the research techniques necessary to conduct a small research project in the area of interpreting and translation. It also focuses on practical interpreting and translation skills. The course is suitable for practising interpreters and translators and for very proficient bilinguals wanting to develop or improve their skills, and who wish to contribute to the body of knowledge on interpreting and translation by conducting innovative, much needed research.
Subject to demand, the following languages are available: Arabic, Japanese, Mandarin, and Spanish.
