This MA Translation Studies programme from The University of Hull adopts a combined approach to translator training, focusing on the practical and reflective skills a translator requires to complete high-quality translation projects that satisfy the needs of clients.
You will follow a balanced programme of modules over the first two trimesters, before focusing on your dissertation in the final part of the course.
Working in lectures, workshops, seminars, computer-based lab sessions and guided private study, you will be assessed through practical written translation and computer-aided translation exercises, class presentations, critical essays and reflective commentaries.
The programme has been designed to ensure you receive the best possible training to build broad translation skills. It prepares you to work in a freelance or in-house capacity as well as in multinational companies, government and international organisations.
Other potential careers include: language teaching, marketing, publishing, and creative industries. Many of our previous students, for example, have started careers as freelance translators, while some have gone on to work for organisations such as the European Commission or progressed to PhD-level study.
