Overview

Non-native speakers of English also may participate in the program and may focus on U.S. culture, including the teaching of English as a second language. An expanding field, Intercultural Communication is the study of the ways in which social structuring, social assumptions and language use bear on interactions between members of different cultures. 

Opportunities

The aim of the program is to allow students to develop advanced foreign language proficiency, to train them to function comfortably and effectively in intercultural situations, and to prepare them for specific career goals through individual courses of study and internships. Students and faculty come from various parts of the world, and participation in the program is itself a significant intercultural experience.

In this Intercultural Communication program at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) , we aim to help our students acquire the following skills: the ability to communicate effectively in different intercultural environments; the understanding of the social, political, cultural and linguistic factors, and the positive informative potential of intercultural citizenship involved in the process of intercultural communication; the development of the level of proficiency in the target language and culture through advanced topic courses in the language; and the acquisition of intercultural skills in areas such as education, digital media, policy and training.

Programme Structure

Three areas of skills acquisition are emphasized:
  • Intercultural filmmaking
  • Intercultural training, including conflict resolution management
  • Intercultural policy issues—immigration, cultural and language policy
