Why this programme
The research in the Translation Studies programme of the University of Glasgow is wide-ranging with students and staff working in fields from literary through to audiovisual translation across a broad range of languages. These include:
Further languages such as Ancient Greek, Latin, Medieval Latin, Gaelic, Early Gaelic, Medieval Welsh, and Irish are also offered in other Schools.
As Translation Studies is necessarily interdisciplinary, the programme at Glasgow draws in a range of expertise across different fields of study. Applicants are encouraged to look at the research profiles of colleagues in all areas of the School and if appropriate, the University. Joint supervision allows students to be advised in Translation Studies but also in a complementary subject area, examples being creative writing, the graphic novel, medieval and renaissance studies, music, law or medicine. Our staff produce world-leading research in the field and engage in wide-ranging collaborations across the College of Arts (English Literature, History, Philosophy, Theology).
