Translation Studies (MA)

Master of Arts

Program overview

As the world grows smaller, translators play an increasingly important role in facilitating connections between individuals and cultures.

Using a multidisciplinary lens, you’ll develop a deep understanding of the function and meaning of translation in the context of globalization and cultural diversity.  

You’ll translate either from English to French, or from French to English.  Choose from two options:

  • Course-based (professional): focus on developing the competencies you need to work as a professional translator in Canada’s two official languages.
  • Research-based: your thesis will look at the theory behind or history of a body of translated texts, or it may take the form of a literary translation, accompanied by critical analysis.

You’ll have the option of completing an internship during your program, drawing on the department’s close ties to the translation industry in Quebec and beyond.

Our students benefit from a supportive learning environment, thanks to small class sizes and faculty members committed to individualized mentoring.

Montreal, the largest French-speaking city after Paris, offers an incredibly stimulating climate for studying translation.
