The Faculty of Theology and Religion offers three qualifications in Bible Translation. For more information, contact the Coordinator of Bible Translation Programmes, Prof Cynthia L Miller-Naudé (Send an email to Prof Miller-Naude)

(Click on the underlined titles for more information.)

The MA Bible Translation is intended for individuals who are or will be engaged in Bible translation as translators, exegetical advisers or consultants. Distinctives of the UFS programme are: (1) setting Bible translation within the broader context of translation studies; (2) emphasis on translation from the biblical source texts; (3) seeing Bible translators as agents of change and Bible translation as part of Scripture engagement and language development.

The MA Bible Translation Management was begun at the request of SIL Africa and iDelta for the training of Language Programme Managers, but is open to students who are not connected to SIL. This unique programme combines training in management and leadership with instruction in Bible translation.

The PhD Bible Translation is a research qualification which consists solely in the writing of a doctoral thesis. Prospective students should contact the Coordinator of Bible Translation Programmes to discuss potential topics for research.


Bible translation qualfications are directed by Prof Cynthia L. Miller-Naudé, Prof Jacobus A. Naudé and Dr Tshokolo J Makutoane
