The Universitat Rovira i Virgili was formed from the already existing university faculties and schools in Catalonia, in 1991, by the Parliament of Catalonia. Its main purpose was to contribute to the social and economic development of the region, whilst also integrating an international approach in its teaching and courses. Currently the school offers 52 different programs to over 12,000 students in a wide range of fields.
The Intercultural Studies Group is the one, carrying out research on mediation between cultures, particularly with respect to new technologies. The Masters in Translation and Intercultural Studies covers the research areas of intercultural theory, translation theory, translation technology, localization, translation history, interpreting, audiovisual translation, and training methodology. Only 15 students are accepted for this degree, and the next intake will take place in 2015.
