The research thesis is a compulsory component of the Masters of Translation and Transcultural Communication program, and should be undertaken in the final semester of study. This 9-unit version of the thesis is for those students who do not wish to proceed to a PhD in the Faculty. In the first instance, students should consult the program convenor for possible topics of research. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the Department of Asian Studies, students are encouraged to explore a broad range of academic field expertise the Department and the Faculty has to offer, namely Applied Linguistics, Literature, Translation, as well as Cultural Studies, Transcultural Communication, History, Politics and International Studies, and Sociology. This 9-unit thesis should be 10,000 words in length (including footnotes but excluding the bibliography).
