Masters

There are currently two Masters degrees in translation on offer at Warwick. The Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies is home to the MA in Literary Translation Studies. Until 2017, the School of Modern Languages and Cultures was home to the MA in Writing, Translation and Cultural Difference. From the 2018/2019 session, the School will launch a new MA in its forthcoming dedicated Translation learning pathway, providing modules on critical and theoretical aspects of translation, written and literary translation, audiovisual translation, and transcultural translation. More information will be provided here when it becomes available.


Doctoral

The PhD in Translation Studies is housed in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies but doctoral research with a Translation Studies angle can also be undertaken within the framework of a PhD in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures. In both ECLS and SMLC there is the possibility for co-supervision across academic units. Potential applicants are advised to contact relevant members of staff directly to discuss project ideas and potential supervision. Information of staff research interests can be found in the People tab above, or on the People pages of SMLC and ECLS.
