Course summary

This Masters degree has been designed to:

  • provide students with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the discipline of Translation Studies
  • enable students to develop the skills upon which professional translator competence is predicated
  • provide students with advanced expertise in their principal non-native language
  • provide students with opportunities for further language-training
  • provide students with appropriate opportunities in professionally-based practice.

The degree is structured in such a way that students can deepen their understanding of key aspects of translation theory and/or choose to concentrate on more practice-based activities. Delivered through a combination of seminars, workshops, guided private study, a programme of visiting speakers and appropriate professional practice, the structure of the degree will enable students to work towards both of these objectives, or to focus more intensively on one of them. In addition to the elements for which they are enrolled, students are encouraged to audit as many other elements of the programme as they wish. 

Graduates can pursue careers in a range of areas where translation skills are required, eg academic, creative writing, translation and interpreting industry, public policy, business and commerce and journalism.

Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes alongside sterling integration with business experts helps our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.
