About

The programme of Translation & Interpreting Studies at the U of Malta caters for a wide range of students who wish to acquire a critical understanding of contemporary issues in translation alongside the practical skills required in today’s fast evolving translation industry. Versatility and employability are thus enhanced and graduates have found work as free-lance/permanent translators and interpreters for EU Institutions. The School of Performing Arts was established in July 2012 to bring together the disciplines of Dance Studies, Music Studies and Theatre Studies, and to provide a sound base for the development of new programmes of study together with more specialised fields of research. The program highlights the performance dimension of the respective disciplines, integrating the interplay between the technical and artistic aspects of performance and the ability to reflect critically on performance within an array of theoretical contexts in contemporary and historical practice.
