Hey there,

I'm thinking of going for an MA in Translations and I'm currently casing out what universities offer courses. Problem is that for personal reasons I might not be able to leave Germany for any extended period of time. The University of Birmingham in the UK offers a distance course, but it sounds terribly theoretical and not at all to my liking. I'd much rather have a somewhat more practical course. Does anyone out there know of a distance course which will get me the coveted MA and not cripple my brain with lots of theoretical hogwash?

on-line program Aug 31, 2003

Hi.

NYU is starting a practical on-line Masters in into English translation. You need two source languages and English is the target.

I'm not sure if classes start this Fall.

I suggest writing to Head of SCPS Foreign Languages for more info: Milena Savova, ms93@nyu.edu

Links to UK universities Sep 3, 2003

Here are a few links to these types of course. I have personally done my MA translation in the University of Surrey, and I thought it was really pracitcal. Not sure they do distance learning but it might be worth asking.
Hope this helps!
