I am not quite sure if the final certificate is officially an M.A. but certainly the most appealing course for a would-be translator from Korean to English focussing entirely on literature has to be the 2 year fulltime course at the Literature Translation Institute of Korea (LTI Korea) in Seoul. It has the advantage of offering free tuition, board and lodging to the most promising applicants. Of course the same is offered in a number of other languages beside English. Full details are on the LTI site. At present classes have to be online of course...

Subject : [KS] Query: Korean-to-English Translation: MA Programs and Internships?

Dear Colleagues

I have a talented undergraduate student who is interested in becoming a professional translator of Korean academic literature.
I humbly request any information you might have that will enable me to provide adequate assistance to this student.  I hope this kind of information will be beneficial for others on this list.

Do you know of any MA programs, preferably in North America or Korea, focusing on the translation of academic literature and/or modern Korean literature from Korean to English?

Do you know of any internships available for students interested in this career path?  What are the most popular or best translation companies?  Years ago I did some work for Joanne Kim (김지명) of Convex, and I have reached out to her, but I am not sure yet if she is still in the business.
