Taught MA Programmes
We offer three taught MA programmes, each with a different professional focus:
- MA in Professional Translation (MAPT) – administrative and technical translation (with optional pathway in Literary Translation), work experience, computerised translation tools and technologies;
- MA in Translation and Interpreting (MATI) – shares many modules with MAPT, emphasises Public Service (not Conference) interpreting. Prepares students to take the DPSI exams of the Chartered Institute of Linguists;
- MA in Communication, Media Practice and PR (MACMPPR) - designed to prepare students for careers in the creative, media and marketing industries.
Each programme is available in two formats: Standard (180 credits over 12 months) and Extended (240 credits over 15-21 months). Both include the option of a 60-credit, 13-week Internship instead of, or alongside, the Dissertation. The Extended MAPT and MATI also offer a unique opportunity to study abroad in semesters 3 and 4, at two different partner universities in the prestigious METS consortium.
