What will I learn?

Course Overview

This programme provides you with a wide range of in-depth knowledge and skills, and enables you to focus on aspects of intercultural communication that are relevant to people working either in business or in other professions. Our core modules develop your ability to analyse, explain and investigate effective communication across cultures. Optional modules enable you to select particular areas in which you want to specialise, according to your own intellectual interests or career aspirations. The programme concludes with an empirical piece of research, which will allow you to put your knowledge into practice and further hone your practical skills in carrying out systematic research.

Teaching

Lectures, seminars, workshops and experiential practice sessions. In addition, you will carry out guided reading and complete assessed work for each module in the form of assignments, portfolios of materials and oral presentations.

You will complete this in the summer with the support of a supervisor. Several of the modules will also help prepare you for living and working in an unfamiliar culture.
