Course summary

Course description

This interdisciplinary course is designed to produce international development practitioners with advanced intercultural communication skills.

You'll develop a critical understanding of the role culture and communication play in international development. You’ll also learn the theory and practice of intercultural communication and international development, and how to apply these to real-life situations.

The course is taught by the School of Languages and Cultures and the Department of Geography. A module on international project management integrates the two subjects and there are communication seminars designed for developers.

On our MA you'll develop essential skills in ethnographic research and form systematic approaches to understanding others’ perspectives. This course will help you develop an intercultural lens on the world’s most pressing problems.

The course includes a ten-day field class overseas that provides hands-on experience of research. Recent destinations have included the Galapagos, Tanzania and Nepal. The cost of the field trip class is included in the fees.
