This one-year MA course in Languages and Cultures (90 credits) at University College Cork will appeal to a wide range of people, including present and future language teachers, and those interested in language studies, linguistics and oral and written communication. The course begins in late September, with teaching ending in March. The thesis is submitted in early October. The course involves attendance at lectures and seminars, the writing of course papers and completion of other assessed tasks including presentations.
The core set of modules introduces students to key concepts needed for engagement in a global market-place: mobility and globalization; intercultural communication; cultural transfer and exchange. They also involve research training and development as well as a dissertation in the student’s area of choice.
Students can choose from modules designed to enhance professional skills and employability and deepen their knowledge of the target cultures in which they specialise; they will graduate from this programme with advanced knowledge and expertise in one or more language areas.
