Description

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.

Course programme

The course runs for two years on a part-time basis. You will take a combination of compulsory and optional modules, to build a solid foundation in the discipline and then specialise in areas that particularly interest you.

In the autumn semester you take two compulsory modules in your first year, Language, Culture and Thought; and New Media and Society, and one compulsory module in your second year, The Power of Discourse. In the spring, you can specialise by selecting one module in your first year and two in your second year from a range that typically includes: Intercultural Communication in Practice; Conflict and Conflict Resolution in Intercultural Communication; Language Issues in a Global Multilingual Context; Politics and Media; Forensic Linguistics and Translation; Intercultural Education and Training; and Multiculturalism.

The final compulsory element is a 60-credit dissertation, which you will write on a subject chosen by you, in consultation with members of academic staff. You will begin work on this at the beginning of the spring semester in your second year for submission in September.
