Translation Studies & Interpreting
The Translation Studies and Interpreting Section currently offers programmes of study leading to the following degrees:
- B.A (Hons.) in Translation with Interpreting
- M.A in Translation Studies (mixed-mode)
- M.A in Translation Studies (research mode)

The strength of the Translation Studies and Interpreting section derives from its focus on the theory and practice of translating and interpreting. The section takes pride in offering the only translation programme in Malaysia which leads to a Bachelor’s degree in Translation with Interpreting. Upon completion of the translation programme, students will have thorough familiarity with methods and strategies in translating and interpreting, legal translation, media translation, ideology in translation, computer-assisted translation and translation evaluation.
Members of the Translation Studies and Interpreting Section are engaged in research across a wide range of issues relating to translation and interpreting, often with focus on specific language communities and specific language pairs. The wide-ranging expertise of members of the section has also enabled us not only to cater for various interests among postgraduate students but also to continually attract students keen to work on translation-related and interpreting-related research projects.
