Course content

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.

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 Nepal and Tanzania.

In a global society based on fairness, everyone’s voice should be heard. The world needs developers who can communicate across cultural boundaries and bring people together. As a graduate of this course, you’ll be well placed to make a difference.

This course is highly flexible – through optional modules you’ll have a variety of ways to develop your language skills and interests.
