Translation Skills in the spotlight
A free, informal Postgraduate information event examining the career options offered by the study of Translation Skills is taking place at the University of Stirling on Monday, 25th March 2013.
At the information evening students considering the possibility of Postgraduate Study will find out more about the MRes in Translation Studies programme which is delivered by the Literature and Languages division of the University’s School of Arts and Humanities. The programme is offered in five language pairings: English and one of either French, Spanish, Chinese, Polish or Russian.
The MRes in Translation Studies has been offered at Stirling since 2010 and has proven to be very successful in assisting graduates into a wide range of exciting career opportunities across the globe. As part of the information session one of the recent MRes in Translation Studies graduates, Gail Clark, will give a presentation describing how the programme has helped her to pursue a career in her chosen field.
Dr Cristina Johnston, Programme Director and Deputy Head of Literature and Languages, and colleagues from the Division who teach on the programme will welcome guests on the evening and Dr Johnston will present an overview of the MRes in Translation Studies programme. She is looking forward to explaining this highly practical programme to potential students who may be looking to develop a professional or academic career in the field of translation: “I am particularly keen to emphasise and explain the employment and advanced academic study opportunities available in the translation field and the fact that employers’ organisations and economic analysts consistently stress the value of high-level language skills to a wide-range of global businesses.”
The main focus of the event will be the MRes in Translation Studies, but Dr Johnston is also Programme Director for the MSc in Translation with TESOL, and will happily take questions on both programmes at the end of the event.
The information session, which will offer complimentary refreshments and country-themed nibbles to guests, is an opportunity for students to meet staff from the Literature and Languages division in an informal, relaxed setting.
The event is primarily aimed at current language students and at those who have graduated ( in languages ) in the last few years.
