Professions for which the degree qualifies its holder
This Master’s degree has an eminently professional focus and has been designed to provide an advanced command of legal and economic translation. Whilst taking this Master’s degree does not represent a sine qua non condition for professional practice as a sworn translator, it is both evident, and indeed our aim, that by completing this Master’s Degree professionals will feel better equipped for inter-language mediation in the fields of law, administration, economics, and commerce. It will also serve as a solid base for those students who wish to prepare for the sworn translator examination.
