Translation Studies with History of Art and Visual Culture with a year abroad - Royal Holloway, University of London

If you want to focus on gaining practical skills in translation alongside fluency in French, German, Italian or Spanish, and you are also keen to engage with the fields of History of Art and Visual Culture, this specially designed four-year degree programme is for you. As a modern linguist, you will not only learn to speak and write fluently, you will also develop excellent communication and research skills and combine language proficiency with cross-cultural perspectives. As a student of History of Art and Visual Culture, you will engage with works of art from different periods and cultural contexts. You will develop a creative and critical mindset, with excellent analytical abilities. As a part of Royal Holloway’s close-knit international community based in our beautiful historic campus, you will be within easy reach of London with its wealth of cultural resources. In your third year you will have the opportunity to spend time working, teaching or studying abroad, where you will immerse yourself in another language and culture, truly broadening your horizons in the process. In the event of a no-deal Brexit, we will commit to providing 2019 and 2020 entry students with a subsidy equivalent to current Erasmus+ funding (where this would have previously been funded by the Erasmus+ scheme). To find out more visit the Erasmus+ page. - Whether you are a beginner, advanced or native-speaker level student when you start, by the time you graduate you will be fluent in one or two languages, confident in reading, understanding and analysing text and able to write with ease and accuracy. - On graduation you will have learnt the theories of translation and practise, with critical skills in professional translation and a focus on translating into English, applying what you have learnt throughout your degree. - You will combine ability in translation and linguistic competence with the capacity to think critically and creatively about art, and will have a good grounding in the history of art and ways of approaching visual culture. - Our research staff are engaged in research at the highest level internationally; we are in the top 10 of UK Modern Language departments for research quality and the top in London (Research Assessment Exercise 2014). -
