Course summary

Translation and Cultures MA aims to provide students with a rigorous academic grounding in the theoretical and practical study of translation. Warwick will equip students with theoretical & practical skills to enhance their effectiveness as translators and other areas of transcultural mediation.

Course Overview

Are you interested in becoming an adept communicator between different nations or cultures? This exciting and innovative course draws on cutting-edge academic research by a new team of experts in translation, transnational and transcultural studies. You’ll develop a rigorous theoretical understanding of translation, informed by the latest research in transnational and transcultural studies, with the opportunity to produce your own translations and/or analyse and compare existing translations. The interdisciplinary programme examines translation between English and at least one of Chinese (standard Mandarin), French, German, Italian and Spanish in a cultural context. You’ll cover translation theory and practice, as well as transnational and transcultural approaches and multilingualism. You’ll also develop excellent communication and critical skills. After graduating, you’ll be well qualified to seek out work within linguistic and intercultural mediation, or to apply for further study or applied research, including on Warwick’s own PhD programme in Translation and Transcultural Studies.

Teaching

This is a taught MA with a significant research component in the form of a compulsory Dissertation, which you will be supported in writing by a Dissertation Supervisor who is an expert in the field. The core translation portfolio includes extensive provision for one-to-one tutoring alongside scheduled teaching in a mixed workshop/seminar format.

Assessment

Modules are assessed by written assignments, consisting of essays, translations and/or analytical commentaries on translations, as well as by portfolio in the case of some core and option modules. From the Spring Term, students will start work on an approximately 20,000-word Dissertation, which may take the form of a translation and analytical commentary appropriately grounded in relevant academic research.
