Course summary

Overview:

This MA is designed for multilingual students who want a career in the creative industries.

In our global culture, talented people with multilingual skills are increasingly sought after by the creative industries. In this trailblazing MA you will have the opportunity to combine your language and translation skills with the study of London’s vibrant creative industries.

On the programme, you will reach beyond the traditional roles of translation and localisation by studying how these disciplines are applied in the creative industries, paying particular attention to the practical application of these skills in a professional environment.

You will be introduced to the emerging areas of transcreation and cultural adaptation, which refer to the creative process of altering messages, so they are suitable for the target local market, while maintaining the original intent, tone, and style. You will also use your multilingual and multicultural skills to translate for the arts, advertising, and entertainment sectors.

We offer a wide variety of optional modules in a range of subjects including translation-related fields such as subtitling, media accessibility and videogame localisation. Alternatively, if you want to build a more media-related profile, you will be able to choose modules on media and communications, film and screen cultures, and social media and data journalism.

You will complete your MA with a dissertation, which allows you to carry out a practical translation task with a commentary or to apply your understanding, knowledge, analytical, conceptual, and personal skills to an in-depth investigation of a topic relating to an appropriate area of intercultural communication.

Placements with translation/localisation companies and cultural institutions are at the heart of this MA. Placements are not compulsory, but you will benefit from the extensive industry contacts of members of staff and the visits of key professionals to help you find a placement that suits your interests.

Career Options

This course provides vocational training for those interested in working in global multimedia, and the cultural and creative industries. However, it will also provide you with a working knowledge of translation, a skill highly valued by employers in a variety of industries. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.
