  • Course description
    Translation studies has witnessed unparalleled growth over the last 20 years.

    The world market in translation barely satisfies a fraction of the demand created by a global economy.

    Translation studies has also pioneered a number of key ideas and concepts which have proved invaluable with regard to the study of cultural exchange in areas as diverse as literature, drama, history, media, law, comparative religion, philosophy and the social sciences.

    The MA programme at Hull is intended to open new avenues of thought while providing a firm foundation in the discipline of translation studies.

    With its equal emphasis on the practical aspects of the translation process and the underlying theoretical issues, the programme will be of interest to all graduate linguists whatever their future career route: commercial or technical translation; literary or stage translation; research, teaching or management.
