Translation Studies: Undertake research in cultural translation, history of translation, literary translation, multilingual translation, translation theory, and criticism with an understanding that a critically informed approach to translation must be informed by practice.  Each stream is based around the model of the cohort, meaning students admitted together into a stream will proceed together through their coursework, portfolio modules, colloquia, workshops, and other required program elements. The cohort model offers peer-support and builds enduring collegial ties through the end of graduate study—and beyond. Each stream features dedicated core courses, broad faculty expertise, and electives specific or related to stream content and, when possible, to the linguistic, cultural, or thematic capacities and interests of the students in the cohort.
