This innovative course is the first of its kind in the UK, providing in-depth training in intercultural communication, drawing on the latest developments in linguistic and psychological theory. The focus on cultural diversity and communication issues will develop your ability to analyse and explain cultural differences in language use and intercultural interactions, and to design effective intercultural training programmes.
You will also examine and critically evaluate theories and research findings relating to communication across cultures.
Together with the core topics in intercultural communication, you may choose pathways to suit your interests and career ambitions in areas such as management, marketing and public relations, travel and tourism, and Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). For those wishing to take options from the TEFL pathway, previous experience in this area is expected.
Differences in the way we communicate can affect interpersonal and intercultural relations; with the help of business and education case studies, you will learn how perceived cultural differences can be analysed and notions of miscommunication and negative stereotyping can be minimised.
The course will also teach you how to design, implement and effectively evaluate intercultural training programmes, equipping you with the practical and professional skills of the trainer/adviser. This will enable you to address contemporary issues affecting todays multicultural societies, both nationally and internationally.
By successfully completing the Master's course in Intercultural Communication, you will gain skills that are highly valued by employers worldwide. You will be able to draw on empirical evidence to explain how linguistic and cultural factors can influence the effectiveness of communication and the appropriate management of relationships. You will have the knowledge, understanding and experience to help deal with cultural diversity issues effectively, in areas such as international business, aid agencies, local authority service providers and education.
No work experience is required.
