About

You integrate your undergraduate and postgraduate studies into one course, graduating with an Integrated Masters in European Languages and Translation at University of Essex.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Language is fundamental to our thoughts, our relationships, and our civilisations. Through language, we transmit knowledge, from inviting someone for coffee, to promoting the latest scientific theory, to settling global political disputes.

You specialise in at least two modern languages, becoming highly proficient in at least one language. Language study is combined from the third year with translation skills.

In your first and second years, you study practical language modules to develop your language skills. French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish can be studied with Mandarin Chinese taken as an option. These languages are all widely used in the business world and many of our graduates have developed successful global careers with international firms.

Your third year is spent studying abroad with modules taken in language and translation. You also develop your analytical thinking and problem-solving skills and expand your linguistic and translation skills and communication proficiency in your chosen language.

Your future after the Integrated Masters in European Languages and Translation at University of Essex

Companies and organisations in the UK and abroad are struggling to find university graduates who are fluent in at least one other language, apart from English.

Being an Essex modern languages graduate places you in a very advantageous position. You will be able to speak and write fluently, or to a very competent standard, in up to four languages. Language skills are in scarce supply and can be used in almost any job.

Alongside skills in translation and subtitling, you also gain key employability skills such as researching and writing for specific purposes.
