Biomedical engineering is a scientific discipline that advances knowledge in engineering, biology and medicine, and improves human health through multidisciplinary research that integrates the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice. Over the last few years there has been a major paradigm shift in both Europe and the United States, away from traditional schemes of health care towards health care systems which are much more dependent on technology. This is true in terms of diagnosis, treatment and health care system integration.

The skills and training you gain on this course will allow you to apply engineering principles and materials technology to healthcare, to understand the design and manufacture of medical equipment, and to consider ethical principles that underpin medical engineering, regulatory issues and governance.

This course aims to provide a well-structured knowledge base for the systematic study of English Linguistics from current synchronic and diachronic perspectives. You will gain appropriate research-based skills (intellectual and practical) to enable you to conduct team-based and independent research projects. In recognition of the variation inherent in undergraduate curricula, this course allows you to build on your existing knowledge while you are acquiring a foundation in a broad range of linguistic methodologies and approaches.

The course will help you to develop an independent approach to learning whereby you will become increasingly responsible for organising your own study and formulating individual research questions. This process will be invaluable if you decide to proceed to PhD-level research, but you will also be able to develop transferable skills in written and spoken communication, and in the collection, analysis and evaluation of data of many kinds and from many sources.

Your ability to present and use this data effectively in response to research questions will be invaluable in many professional settings. We will also be developing your ability to reflect critically on the knowledge and understanding you have gained as well as on your own learning and communication skills.

Course Description

In recent years, human rights have become a central issue in international politics. There are also many serious challenges and issues that cannot be fully grasped without an understanding of ethics, including human rights. This degree addresses these concerns from the perspective of their global political context.

By taking this course you will gain a thorough grounding in the political and international theory of human rights and global ethics. You will develop your knowledge of the different theoretical and political perspectives on human rights and study in depth the global political context of pressing ethical issues.

The course combines the study of the main theories and concepts related to human rights and global ethics with detailed empirical analysis of issues such as intelligence, slavery, citizenship, refugees, animal rights, security and war.

The degree will equip you with the competencies and skills to understand and participate in contemporary debates in human rights and global ethics and to analyse politics and international relations using a mixture of normative, theoretical and empirical tools.

You will gain knowledge and skills relevant to employment and career development in government, media, business, non-governmental organisations and any professional context in which cross-cultural sensitivity and ethical awareness are requirements.

The MA in International Communication and Cultures aims to provide you with a theoretical and practical understanding of communication as a cultural process. Read more
The MA in International Communication and Cultures aims to provide you with a theoretical and practical understanding of communication as a cultural process.

You will discover how cultural meanings are carried within every message and what their effects are at an international level – how they are mediated, interpreted and translated. You will gain the skills required to critically explore the (trans)formation and effects of messages and their meanings in a globalised world. You will also learn how to translate and interpret the delivery of these messages to international audiences and markets, and develop the ability to negotiate and promote intended meaning.

The programme is ideal for those who have studied culture or communication (history, education, communication, social sciences, linguistics or languages) and wish to gain a more practical element with a focus on international markets, or those who have worked in the industry and would like to get a more thorough understanding of transcultural communication, which is linked to their experience.

In the first semester, you will take modules in global studies of communication and culture and in relevant research methods (textual and image analysis). You will be introduced to a range of optional modules for further specialisation, such as, Negotiation and Business Strategies, Documentary Film-making or Intercultural Rhetoric, Translation and Mediation. In the second semester, you will consolidate the knowledge, understanding and skills acquired in the previous semester in the field of international media and intercultural communication. New aspects of your learning in semester two will be an introduction to cultural practices (cultural management, innovation and creativity), but also to the role and use of languages across different cultures. You will be introduced to a range of optional modules for further specialisation, such as World literature, Global Media Events and Latin-America Cinema.

Core modules:
•Analysing transnational and intercultural meaning: Images and film/Language, texts and discourses
•Negotiation in international contexts: The use of language across cultures
•Representing intercultural meaning: Exhibition project or film festival (alternate years)
•Transnational flows, mediascapes and global meaning-making in intercultural contexts

Optional modules:
•Global cultural cities: The visual representation of Barcelona – tourism, football, architecture, festivals
•Global media events: Spectacles, festivals and conferences
•Global online communication: Self-expression and identity
•Intercultural rhetoric, translation and mediation: Promotional, educational and public communication
•Mediating distant suffering: Pity, trauma and victimhood in a transnational context
•Memory beyond borders: The transnational politics of memory and remembering
•Cinematic Representations of Latin America: Local versus global
•Representing intercultural meaning: Film project
•Theories of culture and communication
•Transcultural and transnational aesthetic practices: Cinema, magazines, fashion and museums

This degree will provide you with a comprehensive analysis of contemporary international relations. By taking this course you will have the opportunity to study a range of international issues, and to investigate whether international relations in the post-Cold War period have been founded upon a Western model of 'World Order'.

The course will introduce you to differing concepts of order in the post-Cold War world. It will enable you to think critically about the nature of international relations: about the extent to which Western interests, institutions and culture dominate the world system and the challenges and responses generated by that dominance. The course focuses on both theoretical and empirical approaches to this subject.

You will complete one core module which will critically examine the means by which the West maintains its concept of 'Order'. You can then choose three option modules, which, along with your dissertation, allow you to specialise in areas that interest you or complement your professional goals.

As well as equipping you with a detailed understanding of contemporary international relations this degree will develop your ability to think both analytically and critically and to produce reasoned arguments encompassing your increased knowledge and understanding of the issues. It will also develop your practical transferable skills, including the ability to conduct independent research, verbal and written communication, and presenting and planning.
