The English and Translation department in the College of Humanities at Effat University offers a graduate program leading to a Master's degree in Translation Studies (MTS). The Master's program in Translation Studies is one of the few Master degree programs in KSA. It combines training in translation and interpretation. It admits qualified graduates of translation studies programs, as well as students from other humanities and social sciences backgrounds.
The MTS program fills a current need for competent translators and interpreters in the Middle East, and will significantly contribute to the growth of the translation industry. The program is benchmarked against similar programs offered regionally and internationally.
