Intercultural Business Communication with TESOL (MSc)


Course Description

Develop an understanding of teaching English as a foreign language and the key role intercultural business communication plays in the global economy.

English is a business language for global communication among people who do not share the same native tongue.

This course understands that cultural differences can create barriers, even when English is used as a common language. It thus combines a systematic approach to Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) with a solid understanding of intercultural business communication.

On completion of the course you’ll be well prepared for a career in international business.

What you'll learn

There is an increasing demand for proficient speakers of English and for highly qualified teachers of English as a foreign language. An advanced command of English alone does not ensure the success of cross-cultural business: this course involves a critical examination of issues related to English language teaching and learning, along with cross-cultural business behaviour, cultural dimensions, critical cultural awareness, the key role of languages and training for intercultural sensitivity.

You’ll develop your understanding of approaches to the teaching of English as a foreign language and your ability to critically apply teaching practices to training for intercultural sensitivity. You’ll learn from both disciplines and develop the necessary skills to mentor colleagues who need cross-cultural training.

You’ll also gain an in-depth introduction to research methodology appropriate to undertaking research at this level.

This course has an international outlook and attracts students from a wide range of cultural backgrounds.

This is a one year full-time course starting in September and is split up into three trimesters. You'll learn by a variety of teaching methods including lectures, tutorials and independent study.
