MA in Translation Studies

The requirements for the MA in Translation Studies are under review by the Graduate School and subject to change.

The Master of Arts in Translation Studies is a separate track of the MA in Comparative Literature. Thirty-three credits are required. The degree can be completed in one year, with two semesters of 4-5 courses each (27 credits) and a summer spent writing the thesis/final project (6 credits), but most students take two years, taking three courses each for the first three semesters and a final semester with the thesis/project. A minimum of two languages are required (one may be English). Students in the program will acquire expertise in practical techniques and strategies of translation as well as a rigorous understanding of the theoretical and cultural stakes of the field.
