Course content

Intercultural communication is crucial to comprehending the world today and participating in the world of tomorrow. Globalisation has broken down barriers of time and space but it has not removed linguistic and cultural barriers. Expertise in intercultural communication is a key skill that is of critical value in a whole range of professions that operate on a global scale. This programme will open doors into multiple roles where expert intercultural communicators are needed in multinational and international private sector companies, as well as in a host of public sector professions.

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 an understanding of how new media and mobile technologies which characterize contemporary global networks are affecting communication.
