Benefit from cutting-edge approaches to the study of intercultural awareness and communication skills in the Intercultural Communication programme at The University of Manchester.


Course description

The global era has stimulated transnational cultural flows of people, practices and products, and local cultural complexities that were inconceivable even a generation ago.

Nowadays, it is necessary to function effectively in culturally diverse contexts ranging from organisations and workplaces to neighbourhoods and cities, and to societies and regions.

Consequently, intercultural awareness and communication skills are an advantage in many areas of employment.

The Intercultural Communication programme at The University of Manchester brings together a wide range of expertise to explore the cultural complexities and diversity of our current times from a variety of conceptual, disciplinary and professional perspectives.

The degree is designed for students who are interested in intercultural matters. Some knowledge of a foreign language is preferable, although not a prerequisite.

You can choose from a range of course units covering subjects such as:
  • migration
  • memory
  • media
  • translation
  • language contact
  • English as a global language
  • communicative interaction
  • intercultural relations
  • intercultural competence.
It is also possible to study a foreign language.
