Business English and Intercultural Communication MA

Course Description

This course provides a high quality education at Master's level in Business English and Intercultural Communication, based on the teaching and research strengths of a well-established team of English language scholars.

The course will help you to obtain a systematic and broad understanding of key aspects of intercultural communication, with special attention devoted to practical business settings. It will also help you to acquire Business English at an advanced level.

An important advantage in taking this course is that it merges academic knowledge with practical skill: you will acquire a sound knowledge of interpersonal interaction via English within and across business cultures. In this way you will develop professional skills that are highly relevant to the job market.

There is an emphasis on the practical analysis of English language in use, including spoken and written language.

You will learn how to use different methods of analysis, based on a range of theories of culturally appropriate language use.

Your tutors are active in their own specialist areas and recognised by the Higher Education Academy (permanent staff, after probation: some recently appointed colleagues will only obtain recognition in the months after their arrival in Huddersfield, once they have started teaching). You can be confident that your studies are led by experts with flair and enthusiasm, renowned nationally and internationally for their excellence in teaching and research. As leading researchers in their fields of expertise, your tutors are published authors, award-winners and acclaimed thinkers. Indeed, 75% of work submitted for the most recent Research Assessment Exercise was said to be 'internationally significant' and 'world leading'. (Research Excellence Framework 2014)

We have a vibrant research community of both national and international students. We regularly host conferences which reflect the research interests of our academic staff, and research seminars by our own students, staff and visiting guest speakers.

Linguistics is home to the internationally-recognised Centre for Intercultural Politeness Research, which hosts internationally-reputed experts and which operates with the support of the Linguistics Politeness Research Group.

Linguistics is also home to the internationally-recognised Stylistics Research Centre and English academic staff have held official positions in the Poetics and Linguistics Association (PALA) the world's leading organisation for the study of linguistics.
