What you'll learn on the course
Skills and Training
- Major ProjectThis module will support you in the preparation and submission of a Masters dissertation, allowing you to explore in-depth a particular topic that reflects your academic interest.
- Discourse and IdentityYou will explore the construction and reproduction of different competing forms of identity, mainly but not exclusively within the framework of the European Union. Examples of such competition will be provided by case studies covering clashes of national discourses with the EU and other institutional versions of a multicultural society. To analyse the interaction of identities and discourses you will use a text-based interdisciplinary approach, integrating Foucault's and Barthes' concepts of discourse as well as methods of literary and film analysis.
- Impacts of MigrationYou will explore the push and pull factors which stimulate migration to Europe, and investigate the impact of cultural difference and interconnectedness at national, regional and local level, including the workplace. While taking account of global trends in migration and diaspora, you will focus on the situation in key European countries, in particular Britain, France, Germany and Spain.
- EurocampusThis compulsory one-semester placement module is hosted annually at one of a network of European universities collaborating in the delivery of a Masters programme in Intercultural Communication, including universities in Germany, Finland, Italy, Portugal and France.
- Language, Identity and PolicyYou will explore the psychological and social intricacies of language and interaction both in general and within the EU.
- Intercultural Relations and CommunicationYou will explore the development of relations, communication styles and values between individuals and groups of different cultural backgrounds. You will do so within the framework of intercultural theory and pragmatics on the basis of a variety of texts that focus on intercultural encounters, including contemporary mass media and literature.
- Independent Learning ModuleThis module will support you in the preparation and submission of an independent learning project. It will allow you to study topics not provided within existing modules but within clearly defined parameters, and where appropriate supervision is available.
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.
