About the course

It is a commonplace that communication is at the core of crucial aspects of human life, and that a lot of that communication is mediated. In recent years, however, mediated communication has reached new levels of importance in social and cultural domains stretching from business to identity formation, and a lot of that communication is technically and financially underpinned by global networks of computation and communication. The academic fields of media, communication and cultural studies have responded by re-examining long-established frameworks for understanding communications and also by considering the need for new paradigms fitting new objects of study.

The MA in International Communications Studies - which is designed to meet the needs of graduates from both a communications and non-communications studies background - provides an opportunity not only to study communications against the background of recent theoretical and methodological developments, but also to gain an insight into the skills and knowledge required by the contemporary media and communication industries.

Aims

The aims of the MA International Communications Studies programme are to enable students to:

  • Enhance their knowledge and understanding of the theoretical bases of verbal and non-verbal communication
  • Enhance their knowledge and understanding of the cultural, social, political and economic bases of communications internationally
  • Acquire a high level of proficiency in an East-Asian language or in one European language other than English
  • Develop their intellectual skills
  • Make use of some of the specialised forms of knowledge in the disciplines represented on the degree
  • Practice and develop a wide range of transferable skills that will prepare students for further study and for employment

Course Structure

The compulsory modules strike a balance between, on the one hand, grounding the student’s learning in the classic concepts, theories and methods of media, communication and cultural studies, and, on the other hand, exploring contemporary trends in online business models, international news flows, the use of Big Data etc.

Towards the end of the second semester, each student is assigned a dissertation supervisor based on project proposals.

Semester One

Compulsory modules provide the core skills and knowledge needed to analyse various forms of communication in their contemporary social and cultural settings as well as an opportunity to acquire either a modern European (French, Spanish, German) or East-Asian language (Japanese or Chinese). 

Semester Two

Students will continue to study their chosen language. Students will continue to develop their dissertation projects with the aid of their supervisors and in the compulsory module. Optional modules allow students to immerse themselves in topics suiting their interests and future career goals.

About the Course

The MA is designed for native speakers of Chinese who have a high level of competence in English and wish to develop this further and native speakers of English who have a high level of competence in Chinese and wish to develop it further. It is also open to speakers of other languages than English and Chinese who have a high level of competence in both English and Chinese. The MA combines the theoretical, technological and practical training necessary for effective translation between English and Chinese. It also offers training and practice in bi-lateral interpreting between the two languages. The programme is structured around a range of compulsory and elective modules. The compulsory modules provide the core skills and knowledge needed for translation and interpreting across a wide range of subjects, including the basic concepts of translation and interpreting theory.

Elective modules will enable students to develop skills and techniques needed for translation and interpreting in specific subject areas. The module Translation and Interpreting Dissertation/Project is specifically designed to provide students with a core module on advanced research skills in Translation Studies. In addition to modules in translation and interpreting, students will also take modules in advanced English or Chinese Language. Students can also choose from a number of optional modules that allow them to acquire or develop their knowledge of a language other than Chinese or English. During the summer, students can choose to go to Nottingham UK for summer programme.

Aims

The degree aims to train students who already possess high-level English and Mandarin language skills to professional levels of competence in interpreting and translation. Graduates from the course will be capable of interpreting across a wide range of subjects involving dialogues at specialist consultations and presentations by consecutive mode. Subject to performance in Semester 1, students will have the practice in simultaneous interpreting. Graduates will be capable of translating across a wide range of subjects and have a sound conceptual understanding of the material being translated.

The course will raise students' language skills to a higher level, introduce students to interpreting and translation theory, new technologies for translating and interpreting, key concepts of economics and business, technology, the media and culture. Students will also have the opportunity to continue a second foreign language from intermediate level. Teaching will be enhanced with input from professional and experienced interpreters and translators.

Course structure

The programme is made up of core modules in the theory and practice of translation and interpreting. In addition, students may take optional modules in translation and interpreting in different subject areas, and continue their study of a second foreign language. In the second semester students will continue with both translation and interpreting but they will have the opportunity to specialise in one or the other through the Advanced Translation or the Advanced Interpreting modules. Admission to the modules will be subject to performance in the Professional Translation or Professional Interpreting modules in semester 1. Students will write a dissertation or complete an interpreting or a translation project for submission in late August.
