Message from the Dean
In a world that has turned into a small village due to the advance in the means of communication, mastering foreign languages has become inevitable if one is to be up to the required global standards and contemporary cultural challenges. Deeply aware of the essential need for competent graduates in the field of teaching foreign languages and in the field of consecutive and simultaneous interpretation, the founders of MUST inaugurated, from the university’s inception, a B.A. programme offered by the faculty of Foreign Languages and Translation. The faculty of Foreign languages and Translation is one of the most vibrant ventures supporting the wider community with competent graduates capable of meeting the rapid global changes.
The Faculty of Foreign Languages and Translation incorporates 10 academic departments: English department, French department, German department, Italian department, Spanish department, Turkish department, Chinese department, Japanese department, Arabic department and Greek department. Each department is equipped with qualified staff members who have a wide expertise in teaching and in the practical field of translation. Our students deepen their knowledge via cutting-edge teaching and learning approaches which equip them with the necessary ethos to pursue a promising career at major domestic and international organizations.
Besides the undergraduate programme, the English department has inaugurated a postgraduate programme in the fields of literature and linguistics. Furthermore, the various faculty departments offer inclusive and interdisciplinary scholarships that develop innovative models for the study and assimilation of languages, literature and translation.
