Intercultural communication is an exciting field of study which has developed considerably in recent years, and those who have high-level intercultural knowledge and skills are highly sought after in the workplace.

On this Masters, we’ll cover the main theories of intercultural communication, including best practice for effective communication at work.

This will enable you to connect theory with real-life situations. If you want to work in an international, multicultural environment, and develop advanced intercultural competence and communication skills in more than one language, this course is for you.

Fieldwork is an important part of the course. Professional intercultural trainers give talks. There are opportunities to work on research projects with partner organisations.

This course will also teach you valuable transferable skills such as project management and self-directed research.
