Master of Arts in Translation of Scripture
Canada Institute of Linguistics, in partnership with Northwest Seminary, has begun piloting a new Master of Arts in Translation of Scripture (MATS). We have built this degree program from the ground up with a specific audience in mind, and a desire to better serve our international partners in the Bible translation movement.
At first glance, MATS resembles any other graduate degree program but a look ‘under the hood’ reveals something quite different: it has been designed with a strong commitment to competency-based pedagogy; it is delivered in partnership with Bible translation organizations; and it relies on team-based mentoring for delivery. Graduates from this program will have demonstrated mastery of the competencies required of a translation consultant recognized by the Forum of Bible Agencies International.
