MA Conference Interpreting

The MA in Conference Interpreting (MACINT) aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills for a career in conference interpreting.

Students will offer one of two profiles, reflecting the two distinct profiles of practising conference interpreters.

Profile 1: students who have English as their native language (A language) and two passive foreign languages (C languages). These students will be trained in both types of interpreting out of both C languages into their A language.

Profile 2: designed for students with Arabic, Chinese, French, German and Spanish as their native language (A language) and English as an active foreign language (B language), or English as their native language (A language) and Arabic, Chinese, French, German or Spanish as an active foreign language (B language). These students will be trained in both types of interpreting in both directions (i.e. B-A and A-B).

The taught component of the MA combines 75 credits of conference interpreting courses (consecutive and simultaneous interpreting) with 45 credits of research-oriented courses. The dissertation (60 remaining credits) is written on a research project or a specific interpreting assignment (interpreting plus critical analysis). The programme prepares students for a professional career as a conference interpreter, developing the range of linguistic, specialist and technological skills required in the work place.
