Program description

Master of Interpreting and Translation Studies

The Master of Interpreting and Translation Studies is aimed at students with advanced bilingual proficiency and seeks to develop their skills in translation and interpreting from/to English and another language, and their awareness of practical and theoretical approaches to translation/interpreting practice and studies. The course offers two specializations, focusing on:

  • translation (Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish)
  • interpreting and translation (Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish).

Note: Languages on offer in any one year may vary depending on student enrolments.

Students gain a foundation in theories of translation and interpreting and receive training in research in the field. Upon completion of this course, students are able to conceptualize translation/interpreting studies as an academic discipline in its historical, cross-disciplinary and intercultural context.
