Course summary

Course description

The global era has stimulated transnational cultural flows of people, practices and products, and local cultural complexities that were inconceivable even a generation ago.

Nowadays, it is necessary to function effectively in culturally-diverse contexts ranging from organisations and workplaces, to neighbourhoods and cities, and to societies and regions.

As a consequence, intercultural awareness and communication skills are an advantage in many areas of employment.

Our MA Intercultural Communication master's course brings together a wide range of expertise to explore the cultural complexities and diversity of our current times from a variety of conceptual, disciplinary and professional perspectives.

The degree is designed for students who are interested in intercultural matters. Some knowledge of a foreign language is preferable, although not a prerequisite.

Aims

We have interests in intercultural studies, intercultural training, translation, communication, linguistics, and modern languages and cultures.

These interests allow us to offer a comprehensive course that aims to:

provide you with a cutting-edge critical approach to the field of intercultural communication;
offer a rich range of language and cultural studies-oriented options;
enhance your intercultural awareness and communication skills.

Teaching and learning

All course units are taught on a seminar basis, with group sizes varying depending on the course unit. Seminars offer opportunities for developing group work and presentation skills.

Coursework and assessment

Most course units are assessed by assignments and other marked work, rather than by written examination.

Career opportunities

This course will enhance your opportunities to gain employment in fields where intercultural competence is valued, for example, many multinational companies and organisations, international projects and NGOs, and multicultural and immigrant communities.
