Translation, Media and Modern Language

This course combines degree level learning of French, Spanish or Japanese language with the study of translation issues and media in today’s fast-changing world. Alongside your chosen language you’ll have the opportunity to choose from a range of specialist modules in culture, society, translation and media. You’ll spend your third year abroad at a university in an appropriate country where your honours language is spoken. In translation competence modules you’ll cover the theory and technique of translating, and questions of style and register in a range of specialised areas. In your translation issues modules, which deal with issues associated with globalisation, you’ll be looking at various translation types. These include the transposition of text between languages, media and genres, multilingual websites or IT-mediated texts, film subtitles and theatre. You’ll also have the opportunity to experience professional translation first hand on an optional work placement module. **Course Structure** **Year 1** You’ll be introduced to key themes in the study of language, culture, and intercultural communication. These will help you develop important tools for your degree. You’ll also investigate language and culture with topics related to your chosen language. You’ll take compulsory and optional modules. Compulsory modules are designed to give you a solid grounding while optional modules allow you to tailor your degree. **Year 2** At this stage of your degree you’ll begin the process of specialisation alongside studying translation issues across media. At the same time you’ll hone your skills of academic enquiry and argumentation. You’ll be able to choose from a wide range of modules relating to media, culture, politics, applied linguistics, and intercultural communication. **Year 3** You’ll spend your third year aboard on a study or work placement. This will greatly develop and enhance both your linguistic and cultural confidence; allowing you to think more as a native speaker. So how does this work? - You spend your third year abroad and return for the final year. - If you are taking French, you can study in one of our partner universities in France, Canada, Switzerland or Reunion Island. - If you are taking Spanish, you can study in one of our partner universities in Spain, Mexico, Uruguay or Chile. - If you are studying French and/or Spanish, you have the option to spend your semester/year working abroad instead of studying at a university. - If you choose to work abroad, you are responsible for organising and securing your own work placement(s), which need academic approval. We can provide advice on employment opportunities based on past experiences from previous students and close relations with certain organisations in France, Spain, Argentina, Mexico and Peru. - Japanese language students normally study in one of our partner universities in Japan. - If you are taking one honours language, you spend your entire year abroad in the country of your target language. - You must remain abroad in approved activities not less than 7 months in total. The approved period of residence abroad shall normally coincide with the academic year at the University of East Anglia and must begin no later than October. **Year 4** As well as high-level compulsory language acquisition modules, you will have the opportunity to pursue specialised topic options, including translation, in the area of either French, Spanish, or Japanese enabling you to extend your control over sophisticated language. You can also choose from a range of optional translation, media and society modules or investigate a subject of your own choice in more depth in a dissertation. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
