Course summary

The MA in Literary Translation Studies lets you combine your intellectual talents with your professional ambitions, gaining a strong grounding in translation theory whilst benefitting from our distinct emphasis on the practice of literary translation.

Course Overview

The MA in Literary Translation Studies is aimed at students whose language combination includes English and any other language. This might be a language that you have studied formally in an academic setting, a language that is part of your cultural heritage, a 'big' language or a 'small' language, a modern language or a classical language; it can be a language from anywhere in the world. You do not need to be a native speaker of English but you should feel confident about translating into English from your other language(s).

The MA in Literary Translation Studies will teach you to think critically and theoretically about translation, but it will also hone your practical translation skills. Our practising literary translators will introduce you to the 'real world' of literary translation should you wish to work in the field after completing your degree.

This MA also provides excellent training for a number of other careers including publishing, journalism and teaching, and for doctoral study. You may pursue your studies full-time or part-time and we endeavour to support and take into consideration the needs and existing commitments of part-time and commuting students.
