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.
This Professional Language and Intercultural Studies programme at the University of Leeds is designed for students who want to develop careers with an international dimension, such as working in non-governmental organisations, multinational corporations, commerce, market research, tourism, or the diplomatic service. A postgraduate qualification will also equip you with advanced skills in research, analysis and written and oral communication which will always hold value among employers in a range of industries.
Others have gone into international education, or built on their language skills with further training in areas such as translation or interpreting. Many have also pursued further studies through postgraduate research (PhD), either in Intercultural Studies or related fields.
