Overview

It represents a highly respected qualification which can present a pathway to a career in academia, or widen your scope for employment in fields such as translation, linguistics, education, government or the private sector.

Dynamic research in our department has won attention and funding from external bodies including the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), Wellcome Trust and the EU. The Language Research Centre is based here and we are pioneering a project on the visualisation of translation variation.

You will develop and hone research skills needed for high-level work in the field of modern languages, translation and interpreting, while skills and training programmes available on campus provide further support. You will have the opportunity to deliver presentations to research students and staff at departmental seminars, and at the College of Arts and Humanities Postgraduate conference.
