The global era has stimulated transnational cultural flows of people, practices and products, and local cultural complexities that were inconceivable even a generation ago.

Nowadays, it is necessary to function effectively in culturally-diverse contexts ranging from organisations and workplaces, to neighbourhoods and cities, and to societies and regions.

As a consequence, intercultural awareness and communication skills are an advantage in many areas of employment.

Our MA Intercultural Communication master's course brings together a wide range of expertise to explore the cultural complexities and diversity of our current times from a variety of conceptual, disciplinary and professional perspectives.

The degree is designed for students who are interested in intercultural matters. Some knowledge of a foreign language is preferable, although not a prerequisite.

You can choose from a range of course units covering subjects such as: - Migration

  • Memory

  • Media

  • Translation

  • Language contact

  • English as a global language

  • Communicative interaction

  • Intercultural relations

  • Intercultural competence.

It is also possible to study a foreign language, and there is a placement option that will give you the opportunity to work in community organisations.
