TRANSLATION-RELATED COURSES IN UK-BASED UNIVERSITIES

Translation Studies, as an academic disciplinary study, is not popular with US-based universities. There are very few universities which provide certificate and degree courses in translation. For the convenience of those interested in doing courses in translation, I have made the following list of such courses on offer at US universities. As you would see in this list, there are only two universities Binghamton and Kent State which offer PhD in Translation Studies. Moreover, the translation courses offered at other universities largely concentrate on professional side of translation, providing certificates in specific languages to translators. As we all would agree, the high significance of translating technical as well as literary work is without question in the globalised world of today. The universities in the US, thus, should pay attention to this pressing need, and offer BS, MA, and PhD programmes in translation. Note: All links are clickable.
