The MA programme in Translation Theory and Practice aims to develop an understanding of translation in its social and cultural contexts, a grasp of the technological environment in which modern commercial and/or literary translating takes place, and, where applicable, practical translation skills involving selected language pairs.
Suitably qualified candidates can study for the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or of Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Translation Studies.
The PhD requires a minimum of three years’ full-time study (four years’ part-time). The MPhil is a research degree of the shorter type, normally requiring two years’ full-time study (four years part-time).
Located in the heart of multicultural London, UCL provides a uniquely rich environment for studying and researching translation in all its facets.
Academic departments with specialist knowledge of West European languages and cultures are part of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
