MA Professional Language and Intercultural Studies


Course Description

This programme combines the study of interactions between cultural groups with modern languages – including English – to give you the knowledge and skills for an international career.

You’ll explore the ways in which cultural groups relate to each other and learn about the role that English plays in different contexts worldwide. But you’ll also have the chance to develop skills in translation, or public speaking and written communication in English. You’ll also focus on topics that suit your interests and aspirations, as you choose from optional modules across disciplines and geographies.

You could study Middle Eastern politics, screen translation, gender and equality in the workplace, language acquisition and Japanese business practice among many others. You could even study a foreign language. If you’re looking for a career with an international dimension, this programme will allow you to develop the knowledge, cultural awareness and practical skills to succeed.

We’re a truly international university, with over 30,000 students from more than 130 countries and a large, diverse team of leading researchers and practitioners.

Our students benefit from this stimulating learning environment while developing their skills in state-of-the-art facilities; as well as our world-class research library, you could practice translation in our Electronic Resource and Information Centre (ERIC), fully equipped with the latest software and translation tools. It’s an excellent place to gain an insight into the relations between cultural groups while gaining valuable practical skills.

Course Content

In your first semester you’ll explore key issues in intercultural studies and develop the skills for effective research. You’ll also study the usage and role of English worldwide in different contexts.

Beyond these core modules you’ll shape the course of your studies. You’ll choose from a variety of language-based modules, either developing your specialised translation skills or getting to grips English in professional contexts. You’ll also then build on your knowledge by selecting optional modules from an impressive range, cutting across disciplines to suit your career plans and interests.

By the end of the course in September, you’ll be able to showcase your skills when you hand in your individual project or dissertation.
