MA
MLAC
Masters study type: Full time Masters study type: Part time

This course is ideal both for prospective professional translators and for those wishing to go on to further academic study, and it is internationally well respected for both of those purposes. The course is designed for both native speakers of Arabic, and speakers of English who have near-native competence in Arabic.

The MA lasts for twelve months and it combines training in English to Arabic and Arabic to English translation with a special consideration of the theoretical issues involved in the process of translation. The MA modules are mainly taught in the Department of Arabic. Translation Theory and Research Methods and Resources (RMR) are offered by the School of Modern Languages and Cultures (MLAC).

Course structure



The MA involves a combination of core modules, which are taken by all students, plus a number of optional modules, where students have a choice.
The course structure of the MA is as follows:

Core Courses: obligatory for all students
•Research Methods and Resources (30 UCUs)
•Translation Theory (30 UCUs)
•Translation practical Arabic>English, English>Arabic (30 UCUs)
•Dissertation (60 UCUs)

Optional Modules: students choose two courses from the following options:
•Legal Translation, Arabic>English, English>Arabic (15 UCUs)
•Interpreting (15 UCUs).

Part-time study



It is possible to do the MA on a part-time basis by spreading the workload over two years instead of one. Please note, however, that this does not exempt you from day-time attendance as the MA cannot be taken through evening classes or by correspondence.
