Doctor of Philosophy in Translation Studies

The PhD in Translation Studies is composed of two stages, an initial stage of one year in which the student takes 6 seminars and writes 6 papers, the contents of which are tailored to the student’s research needs and goals, and a subsequent stage of research and writing culminating in a dissertation.

This second stage lasts 3 years, and may be extended to 6 years. Since translation is inherently an interdisciplinary pursuit, students may take one or more seminars from other departments, depending on the topic of their research. From a theoretical point of view, the PhD in Translation Studies at AIU espouses a cognitive linguistic approach.
