Our globalized world — and the cultures and subcultures within it — have specific communication needs.

In the Master of Arts in Intercultural and International Communication program, you'll develop the communication skills to bridge relationships in our media-rich, global community.

Informed by theory and practice, you'll learn to engage with multiple channels for communication like media, social marketing, advocacy and public culture.

You'll take a strategic approach to media and public relations, applying your knowledge and writing skill to different fields: sport, health, diplomacy and social development.

You'll become familiar with different organizational structures — government, NGO, corporation and not-for-profit — and you'll learn ways to engage their audiences.

Graduates of the Intercultural and International Communication course at Royal Roads University will see how communication influences culture, and how culture shapes communities.

You'll be able to communicate effectively in complex cultural circumstances.
