The Intercultural Communication and Education MA course offered by Durham University provides students, educators, and policymakers with resources for reflecting on and responding to the growing need for intercultural education and communication in an increasingly intercultural/international world.
In all of our postgraduate taught courses we place an emphasis on empowering students to be autonomous, independent learners. The taught modules provide an introduction to module content which is then developed and extended through our use of online resources, key reading and independent study and research. We consider the development of independent learning and research skills to be one of the key elements of our curriculum and one which helps our students cultivate initiative, originality and critical thinking.
On the MA Intercultural Communication and Education course you will take compulsory core modules worth a total of 90 credits plus one optional module worth 30 credits. Modules are delivered either mid-week or at weekends which provides flexible study options. Modules are delivered using a combination of lectures, seminars workshops and tutorials. The core modules are designed to provide students with a critical understanding of theories, research and issues relevant to their chosen programme of study. Outside timetabled contact hours, students are also expected to devote significant amounts of time to reading, discussing and preparing for classes, assignments and project work.
