The Programme is research-oriented and aims at training students in critical thinking to conduct independent research in translation studies. Thesis supervisors are assigned in accordance with individual students’ research topics.
Students are required to complete “Research Seminar in Translation I”, “Research Seminar in Translation II” and “Thesis Supervision”. They will meet regularly with their supervisor(s) for discussions on their research topic. They must pass a qualifying examination, complete a dissertation and go through an oral examination. The Division may also require students to take additional courses if necessary.
Students must pass the qualifying examination within the maximum period stipulated below (calculated from the date of admission) before they can be promoted to PhD candidature.
After passing the qualifying examination, candidates will proceed to complete their theses.
