Overview

In our increasingly global world, contact between cultures is of vital economic and sociocultural importance. Our Master’s course will give you the skills and knowledge to build a successful career in an intercultural environment.

You’ll gain an understanding of how cultural differences impact on human interaction in both the workplace and society. With modules that focus on topics like migration, identity and cultural relations, you’ll advance your theoretical knowledge at the same time as improving your business and professional communication skills.

You’ll also learn to use different methodological tools that will help you understand language and communication, as well as sharpen your analytical skills. This will give you the confidence to think independently and innovatively around the interdisciplinary, and often multinational, challenges of the modern world of work.

As a full-time student, you can choose to spend one semester at a European university (the Eurocampus). At the Eurocampus, your studies will be equivalent to those of Cambridge-based students, and you’ll still work in English.

On both our Cambridge campus and the Eurocampus, you’ll be working alongside students from all over the world, including the USA, Canada, Germany, France, China, Japan, Taiwan, Spain, Italy, Finland, Turkey and Lithuania. This will give you additional experience and understanding of intercultural environments to support your academic studies.

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.

One of our recent students, Stephen Trinder, began an assistant professorship position teaching English at Silla University, South Korea immediately after graduating. In 2014, he was appointed to a lectureship position at The Higher Colleges of Technology in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, heading their Intercultural Studies course. Stephen is now continuing to study for his PhD with us.

After you graduate, you might also decide to move on to a research degree, such as ourPhD English Language and Intercultural Communication.

Assessment

Our course gives you the option to spend one semester at a European university, or study in Cambridge only.

On the Cambridge-only route, you’ll show your progress through written coursework: 6,000-word essays for all modules except Impacts of Migration, which requires a 5,000-word essay and a presentation. You'll also complete a 15,000-word dissertation.

On the 'Eurocampus' route, you’ll be assessed through a combination of methods depending on the institution.

Awards and distinctions

By taking this course, you’ll be studying on a programme that has twice been awarded the UK Trade and Investment National Languages for Export award (for the Eastern region in the UK), in the category 'Innovative courses in adult, further and higher education which prepare students for working in, or with, people from non-English-speaking markets'.

Study abroad options

The Eurocampus takes place every year during the September semester at one of the following institutions: Universität Bayreuth, Germany; Anglia Ruskin University, UK; University of Jyväskylä, Finland; Universidade Aberta, Portugal; Università della Svizzera Italiana, Switzerland; Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales, France; University of Tartu, Estonia; University of Utrecht, Netherlands.

The Eurocampus location for the next two years will be:

  • 2017: Urbino, Italy
  • 2018: Coimbra, Portugal

The Eurocampus placement must be full-time, but the Cambridge deliver can still be taken part-time.

The deadline for Eurocampus applications is 1 April for September starters. There is no deadline for January starters, as the Eurocampus placement will begin the following September.

"Taking part in the Eurocampus was an unforgettable experience for me that prepared me very well for my working life. After finishing my studies, I moved back to Germany to start work as a personnel consultant. Each day, I guarantee that companies receive suitable candidates. My intercultural knowledge, acquired at the Eurocampus, is critical for the success of companies as well as for my own career as a personnel consultant." Annka, MA Intercultural Communication
