Program Information
Faculty: Graduate Programs
Degree: Doctorate

Description The primary objective of the doctoral program in translation studies is to produce qualified scholars in the field for academic teaching and research. The doctoral program will focus on: theories, history and pedagogy of translation as inter-lingual and intercultural communiction and lexicology, terminology, and technologies as applied to translation. Since translation is interdisciplinary, the doctoral program may collaborate with disciplines in other units such as Law, English, Canadian Studies, French, Modern Languages and Literatures, Linguistics, Philosophy, as well as the School of Information Technology and Engineering (SITE). However, the administration of the program is the sole responsibility of the School of Translation and Interpretation. This full-time program consists of four courses, a comprehensive exam, and a thesis.
