Master description

The aim of this Master's degree is to train professional conference interpreters so that they can join the professional employment market in interpreting either at the local level or at the level of the international institutions.
On completing the Master's degree students should be able to carry out consecutive or simultaneous interpretations of professional level discourses in a range of registers from all their foreign languages (C languages) to their mother tongue (Language A). They will also understand the context of international and intercultural relations as well as their organisations and instruments, with the aim of contextualising communicative processes in which they will carry out their professional activity as interpreter.
