The Department of Languages, Cultures and Film are launching two brand new MAs that will be available from 2024.

The Translation and Interpreting MA is the ideal master’s if you are interested in a career in translation. This exciting master’s will provide practical training in translation and interpreting across a wide range of topics such as literature, film, science and business. Students will be able to choose to specialise in: Arabic, French, German, Italian or Spanish language alongside English.  For those who wish to specialise in Chinese and English translation, the Chinese-English Translation and Interpreting MA is available. This course will be supported with specialist facilities such as the Department’s brand-new interpreting suite (opening in 2024) and language labs.

The Translation and Interpreting MA will offer the desirable option to undertake a work placement for those who wish to get further practical translation/interpreting experience with an organisation or agency. The Department of Languages, Cultures and Film will be utilising their connections with organisations in the Liverpool and Merseyside region in order to offer placement options in a range of sectors such as in the museums, galleries and cultural sector and with translation agencies.  

The Film Studies MA will offer the opportunity for students to study film from a local to global perspective. This master’s will take a transnational and transcultural approach enabling the study of film across the globe, whilst offering the opportunity to study Screen in Liverpool due to the city’s rich film history. Students will benefit from specialist knowledge and teaching from Departments: Music, Film, Communications and Media and History, in addition to benefitting from specialist facilities such as media and editing suites.

Focussing on cultural theory, historical and geographical contexts, platforms of distribution and industries, and analysis of films and other media such as television and photography, students will develop approaches to current developments in the study of films and visual cultures from around the world whilst on this innovative Film Studies MA.

Applications for both MAs will be open soon. If you would like to express your interest in either programme and be added to the mailing list to be notified when applications open, please contact:
