University rank #301 (WUR) Cambridge, United Kingdom
The Intercultural Communication course at Anglia Ruskin University will help you learn to communicate effectively in an intercultural workplace and prepare for a role in today’s globalised world.

About

During the Intercultural Communication course at Anglia Ruskin University, you will discover the importance of intercultural relationships to the modern socio-economic climate - and to building a successful career within it.

You will explore how cultural differences impact our interactions in the workplace and in wider society, considering topics such as migration, identity and how EU policy confronts language issues.

By learning to use different methodological tools to understand language and communication, you will sharpen your analytical skills and gain the confidence to think independently around the interdisciplinary, and often multinational, challenges of the modern workplace.

If you study full-time with us, you can also choose to spend one semester at a European university (the Eurocampus). Your studies will be equivalent to those of Cambridge-based students, and all your work will be in English, but with the benefit of gaining first-hand experience of living and working in a different country.

Careers

Our MA Intercultural Communication will prepare you for many different roles with international companies, local government and European institutions. Past graduates now enjoy careers in intercultural training (e.g. for Communicaid), work with Non-Governmental Organisations such as UNESCO and UNICEF, intercultural mediation in educational or social contexts, language teaching, translation/interpretation services, international property sales and business, education or embassy administration.
