(Online Master in Terminology)
What is terminology? Is it a scientific discipline? Does terminology have its own theories or does it apply theoretical assumptions from other disciplines? What are the terminological needs that can be found and what kinds of terminological problems could we faced with? How we can succeed in dealing with terminological difficulties? Our courses of Online Master Program in Terminology are aimed at answering these questions and many others.
This modular master program provides an overview of theoretical and practical topics in terminology and explores subjects like communication, professional needs, documentation, terminography, and translation. We observe how these aspects are developed in terminology, how they can be studied through various practices, how they interconnect to give a comprehensive perception about terminology, and how theoretical aspects of terminology support all these activities.
