The doctoral program Translation and Language Sciences consists of a period of doctoral research. Students who have completed a research master’s program and other students in analogous situations(*) may start their doctoral research in one of the following ten research lines, associated with research groups in the Department of Translation and Language Sciences (DTCL) and in the Institute for Applied Linguistics (IULA):
|Reception and Literary Translation||DTCL|
|Lexicology and Lexicography||IULA|
|Terminology and Knowledge Management||IULA|
|Formal and Descriptive Linguistics and Variation||DTCL-IULA|
|Computational Linguistics and Language Engineering||DTCL-IULA|
The doctoral program includes a number of training activities that must be carried out to complement the student's specific thesis-related research work. During the first year, the training activities include at least the participation in two taught doctoral seminars. Also, by the end of the first year students must produce their Research Plan, which must include a statement and justification of the intended research goals, a description of the methodology to be used, and a work plan (material means and time frame) that ensures viability.
This overview guide includes information on the most important aspects of the doctoral program as established until September 2012. During the first months of the academic year 2012-13 the guide will be adapted to reflect the changes introduced by the new rules and regulations of doctoral programs.
(*)In addition to people who have obtained a research master's degree, people who have a Diploma of Advanced Studies (DEA) or other types of master's degrees can also apply for admission to the doctoral program, subject to the conditions set up by the University (more information).
