Translation Studies pathway

You will take in a Minor in Translation Studies alongside the study of one or two modern languages.

  • One language: choose from French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish.
  • Two languages (one must be from the previous list): choose from Catalan, English Language, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. One may be taken from Beginners Level, with the exception of French and English Language which are only available at Higher Level. 

The Translation Studies modules are professionally oriented, which will home your practical translation skills, introduce you to theoretical approaches, and give you a strong grounding in the study of language.



Modules and courses are constantly updated and under review. As with most academic programmes, please remember that it is possible that a module may not be offered in any particular year, for instance because a member of staff is on study leave or too few students opt for it. The University of Birmingham reserves the right to vary or withdraw any course or module.
