The Master of Arts in Linguistics & Translation (MALT) is a specialized graduate degree program that trains students in the techniques of applied linguistics and interpretation of biblical texts for effective cross-cultural communication and ministry. Graduates will be prepared to produce scientific descriptions of languages and cultures, literature and materials for literacy instruction, and translations of the Bible. This program is offered by ACTS Seminaries in cooperation with the Canada Institute of Linguistics on the campus of Trinity Western University. Faculty involved in this program have extensive hands-on experience in applied linguistics, linguistics software, literacy, community development, and Bible translation in languages around the world. The MALT program was previously known as the Master of Applied Linguistics & Exegesis (MLE).
