This course will enable you to:
- understand how cultural differences impact on human interaction in both the workplace and social contexts
- develop your own intercultural communicative competence
- enhance your business and professional communication skills
- acquire methodological tools for understanding language and communication
We offer two routes of study for this course. Route A takes place entirely in Cambridge; route B enables you to study for one semester at a European university (the Eurocampus). Whilst at the Eurocampus you will take a course of studies equivalent to those that other students will be taking in Cambridge. English will remain the language of study.
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.
