The course is intellectually stimulating and upon completion learners will have the skills, knowledge and understanding to apply theoretical frameworks to real world interpreting and translation situations, support co-interpreters/translators and engage in complex SLT/I work in the medical, legal and conference domains.
The Interpreting programme offered by the University of Wolverhampton adopts an interdisciplinary approach that will enable learners to develop an understanding of complex and challenging SLT/I environments.
Skills development includes professionalising working languages, updating your knowledge of new research and its application to our work and critical reflection on one’s own and others practice.
The course prepares learners to work as sign language translators/interpreters (SLT/I) within the health, legal and conference domains and is the only course in the country to engage in situated learning alongside allied professions. The profession has been seeking greater levels of specialism for legal and health settings and this course will provide that degree of specialism.Learners also have the option to progress to higher degree. A master’s qualification prepares graduates for PhD study. Increasingly the department is attracting PhD students in the subject area.
