Professor Emerita Kaisa Häkkinen has been conferred the honorary title of Academician of Science. President of the Republic granted the title at a presidential session 27 November 2020.
The Degree Programme in Language Learning and Teaching is one of the three MA programmes in the School of Languages and Translation Studies. We train experts in language learning and teaching and conduct a range of multilingual and multidisciplinary research on language learning.
Translation Studies research at the University of Turku is interdisciplinary and aims at a deeper understanding of the needs of a multicultural and multilingual society. This we approach from two points of view: a historical perspective, and an interest in today's workplace, its needs and challenges.
The School of Languages and Translation Studies is an expert organisation whose members specialise in multidisciplinary research on language systems, the present and past phenomena of individual languages and the general features of human language. Our researchers participate in the various thematic collaborations of the University of Turku: digital futures, cultural memory and social change, and children, young people and learning.
