The Course


Middlesex University is currently the only institution in the UK to offer this professional practice degree. It aims to enable informed and rigorous investigation of the professional field of applied language activities through the lens of interpreting and translation while allowing for a focus on service management or bilingual professionalism, in ways that are cannot be catered for within traditional MA study. The specialised Language Services Management route and the Professional Bilingual Skills route are innovative features of this programme. This course allows practising professionals to engage their professional and life experiences as multi-lingual individuals and linguists, and as (usually) trans-national migrants or community members, in MA study and to build upon their vocational qualifications. This course has been designed for practising linguists to develop an advanced mastery of the subject, while making use of their experience in a diverse and complex area of professional practice. Virtual learning will be used as the learning space in which you will find video recorded lecturers, guided reading and online interaction spaces (WIKIs, discussion groups, dissemination of information) and work programmes. On-campus meetings will take the form of seminars, workshops and site visits where required. This programme addresses a need for progression opportunities for interpreting and translation professionals with considerable experience.
