As well as gaining business communication skills, you’ll explore language and cultural theory.
You’ll examine how cultural differences impact our interactions in the workplace and in wider society and consider topics such as migration, identity and how international policy confronts language issues.
By learning to use different methodological tools to understand language and communication, you’ll sharpen your analytical skills and gain the confidence to think independently about the interdisciplinary, and often multinational, challenges of the modern workplace.
Seminars and guest lectures hosted by ARU’s Research Centre for Intercultural and Multilingual Studies will supplement your studies, and you’ll be supported throughout by our expert specialist lecturers.
As a student on this MA Intercultural Communication at ARU, Anglia Ruskin University you’ll be joining a course twice awarded the National Languages for Export award, given to organisations that promote the importance of understanding international culture and language.
Graduates of this course have gone on to a variety of careers including: intercultural training (e.g. for Communicaid); intercultural mediation in educational and social contexts; work with non-governmental organisations (Unesco, Unicef); language teaching (both English and other languages in the UK and abroad); translating and interpreting (in agencies or community contexts); administration (in business, education or embassies); international property sales; and human resources. A number of students have also continued to PhD study.
