Course programme

M.Phil. in Translation Studies

The Centre for Applied Linguistics and Translation Studies (CALTS), created as a research centre in 1988, established a post-graduate teaching programme in 1990. CALTS specializes in language interface studies with a special emphasis on Language Technology (for which a Special Assistance Programme has been sanctioned by UGC from 2002 to 2007), translation studies, lexicography, language planning and language teaching. CALTS has three ongoing projects on language technology and machine translation funded by MCIT, Govt. of India and UPE. Widely perceived as one of the advanced centres of teaching and research in linguistics and translation studies in the country, the Centre, jointly with IIT Kanpur, has also created a substantial computation facility for research and training in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Translation (MT). CALTS has specialised faculty members in other areas too, which include formal syntax and semantics, historical linguistics, stylistics, psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics as well as specialists in different ancient and modern Indian and foreign languages, such as Sanskrit, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Bengali and Russian.

M.Phil. in Translation Studies is a two-semester programme including course work and a dissertation. There are four courses to enable students from literary as well as scientific backgrounds to pursue their interests in translation studies and begin research without getting too deeply involved in micro linguistics. The dissertation will have to be written on a translation studies topic approved by the Centre.
