This MA combines a strong grounding in translation theory with a focus on the practice of literary translation and the study of literatures across cultures and languages. The opportunity to benefit from the experience of the many practising translators in English and Comparative Literary Studies is one of the degree’s unique offerings.
Rather than focusing on translation between specific language pairs, this MA explores translation as a literary and cultural phenomenon and considers how literatures cross borders through translation. We welcome students with expertise in English and any other language or languages.
Recent postgraduates have gone on to work as translators and interpreters, language teachers, in academia, publishing, journalism and business, among other destinations.
