What will I learn?

Course Overview

In the 21st century, meeting, working and communicating with people from across the globe has become part of everyday life. This diversity of culture brings with it a need for businesses and organisations to reassess their communication strategies to ensure that their internal and external communications are fully effective. Lancaster University’s MA in Intercultural Communication is designed to equip you with the expertise to advise on and implement effective communications in a range of multicultural settings.

This Masters programme gives you the opportunity to deepen your understanding of communication across cultures by drawing on both linguistic and social theory. You will study modules on intercultural communication and research methods. Our aim is to provide a strong background in subject-specific knowledge and develop your skills in a range of analytical methods. You can also select from a range of optional modules, offering an opportunity to follow your own interests.

Our teaching approach usually combines tutor-driven lectures and student-driven seminars, assessments that require autonomous work and group work.

Many graduates of the MA in Intercultural Communication go on to PhD study at Lancaster University or other universities.
