Summary

This course combines the study of intercultural communication/studies with a thorough grounding in professional language. The intercultural side encompasses the study of social interaction between cultural groups, including theoretical analysis of some of the thornier global questions which we currently face. In terms of professional language, you will develop skills in translation, public speaking and written communication in English. These two strands are closely connected through exploring the role that culture and languages play in shaping our identity, influencing social relations and affecting aspects of power.

You’ll also focus on additional topics that suit your interests and aspirations, as you choose from optional modules across different disciplines or contexts. You could study modules focusing on screen translation, gender and equality in the workplace, pragmatics and international organisations among many others. You could even study a foreign language. If you’re looking for a career with an international dimension, this course will allow you to develop the knowledge, cultural awareness and practical skills to succeed.

We’re a truly international university, with over 30,000 students from more than 130 countries and a large, diverse team of leading researchers and practitioners.

Our students benefit from this stimulating learning environment while developing their skills in state-of-the-art facilities; as well as our world-class research library, you could practice translation in our Electronic Resource and Information Centre (ERIC), fully equipped with the latest software and translation tools. It’s an excellent place to gain an insight into the relations between cultural groups while gaining valuable practical skills.
