This course is ideal both for prospective professional translators and for those wishing to go on to further academic study, and it is internationally well respected for both of those purposes; the course is designed for both native speakers of Arabic, and speakers of English who have near-native competence in Arabic; translation theory and research methods and resources (RMR) are offered by the School of Modern Languages and Cultures (MLAC); it is possible to do the MA on a part-time basis by spreading the workload over 2 years instead of 1; 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.
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).
Applicants are expected to have an Honours degree (upper 2nd class degree or equivalent, that is, 60 percent or above overall) in a relevant subject, such as language, literature or linguistics; if applicants hold their degree in a non-language-related field, applicants may be admitted provided they can demonstrate that they have the required competence in English and Arabic; English language requirements include an IELTS of at least 7.0 (with no element below 6.5), or TOEFL iBT 102 (no element below 25).
