MA Chinese-English Translation and Language Teaching

  • DeadlineStudy Details:

    MA 1 year full-time

Course Description

The MA in Chinese-English Translation and Language is available if you are a first language Mandarin speaker from China, interested in an applied language career such as translating and teaching English or Chinese as a foreign language.

This course gives you language-specific skills in translation studies and applied linguistics. It aims to lock the broad area of translation into a specific context, translating between English and Chinese.

You will address the issue of non-native speakers as English teachers, applied language studies, and translating and teaching English or Chinese as a second language.

Our degree proves equally attractive to Mandarin teachers wishing to build knowledge in applied linguistics theory and practice.
