Our course enables you to meet the growing need for increased knowledge in cross-cultural communication. You will receive communication-focused training and develop expertise in cross-cultural communication. The course covers understanding how cultures and human behaviour reflexively interconnect.The course answers questions including how cultural background impacts upon successful communication and how language, thought, and behaviour are interrelated. The Cross-Cultural Communication (CCC) MA is relevant if you wish to study communication, language and culture. It will also suit anyone intending to work, or are already working, in international and cross-cultural environments where communication is an essential aspect of that work, as for example: communications consultants; interpreters; social workers; international sales representatives; journalists; medical and healthcare professionals; humanitarian aid staff; teachers; local government officials.
