Course content

Intercultural communication is crucial to comprehending the world today and participating in the world of tomorrow. In a world where most people work in professions which routinely operate across linguistic and cultural barriers, you will graduate ready to take on a wide range of key roles. This might be in the huge global growth industry of translation or in a host of other professions where an understanding of intercultural communication is critical.

You will develop a broad-based approach to the study of language and intercultural communication, both as a cultural resource and a cultural practice. And you will gain an understanding of how the new media and mobile technologies that characterise contemporary global networks are affecting communication.

You will be taught by leading scholars and enjoy high levels of contact time and individual academic support in a friendly and stimulating environment, with dedicated support available for non-native speakers of English.
