In Semester One, the programme at National University of Ireland, Galway introduces students to the field of Translation Studies, providing a strong theoretical focus and a history and development of this field. Alongside this, students develop the skills of translation, focusing on any two of the aforementioned languages, and may select from cognate subjects dealing with the skills of Consecutive Interpreting and Translation Methodology and Text. Students subsequently complete a dissertation broadly related to any of the theoretical or social issues broached throughout the year and relevant to the field of Translation Studies.
As there is a genuine need for professional translators, this postgraduate programme in Translation Studies will be an important qualification for graduates wishing to add specific professional skills to their primary qualification. An important aspect of the programme will be the exploitation of new language technology, utilising the multimedia facilities available on campus.
Career OpportunitiesGraduates have gone on to pursue careers in a range of fields, including the civil service, teaching, translation and human resources. Beyond the honing of translation skills, students will develop a range of transferable skills through collaborative tasks and presentations at various stages of the course.
