MA in Applied Linguistics

The postgraduate programme in Applied Linguistics and Literary Theory, in drawing on the knowledge fields of both its disciplines, is aimed at the specialised education and training and research needs of language practitioners such as translators, interpreters, text editors, language planners, copywriters, literary reviewers and language teachers. Translation and interpreting are complex linguistic, cognitive and textual processes that, among other things, also entail socio-cultural mediation.

Given the complexity of these activities and hence the interdisciplinary nature of language practice, these programmes offer a balance of theoretical, practical and experiential knowledge and skills.

Admission requirements

A BA Honours Degree in Applied Linguistics and/or Literary Theory or an equivalent qualification.
