The MA lasts for twelve months and it combines training in English to Arabic and Arabic to English translation with a special consideration of the theoretical issues involved in the process of translation. The MA modules are mainly taught in the Department of Arabic. Translation Theory and Research Methods and Resources (RMR) are offered by the School of Modern Languages and Cultures (MLAC).
Course structure The MA involves a combination of core modules, which are taken by all students, plus a number of optional modules, where students have a choice.
The course structure of the MA is as follows:
Core Courses: obligatory for all students * Research Methods and Resources (30 UCUs)
* Translation Theory (30 UCUs)
* Translation practical Arabic>English, English>Arabic (30 UCUs)
* Dissertation (60 UCUs)
Optional Modules: students choose two courses from the following options: * Legal Translation, Arabic>English, English>Arabic (15 UCUs)
* Interpreting (15 UCUs).
Part-time study It is possible to do the MA on a part-time basis by spreading the workload over two years instead of one. Please note, however, that this does not exempt you from day-time attendance as the MA cannot be taken through evening classes or by correspondence.
Applicants will be expected to have a BA degree (upper-second class degree or equivalent, that is, 60% or above overall) in a relevant subject, such as language, literature or linguistics. If you hold your degree in a non-language-related field, you may be admitted provided you can demonstrate that you have the required competence in English and Arabic.
We welcome applications from holders of international qualifications. For advice on the equivalency of international qualifications and further information on English language requirements, please contact our International Office or visit our website.
