Contact between cultures is of prime economic and sociocultural importance in our increasingly global world, and well-qualified people are needed to deal successfully with increasing intercultural interaction.
Our course will enable you to:
We offer two routes through this course. Route A takes place entirely in Cambridge; route B enables students to study for one semester, subject to visa requirements, at a European university (the 'Eurocampus'). Whilst at the Eurocampus you will take a course of studies equivalent to those that other students will be taking in Cambridge. English will remain the language of study.
Route A: Cambridge
The focus of this route is on questions of culture and identity, migration and intercultural relations in contemporary Europe and beyond. In this highly interdisciplinary course, taught by Cambridge specialists and international guest lecturers, you will use different methodologies (from linguistics, historical study, and interculturalism) in developing your analytical capacities and in gaining a deeper understanding of the sociocultural, political and economic challenges today.
Route B: Cambridge/Eurocampus
On this route you study one semester in Cambridge and one semester on the Eurocampus. The latter is a teaching and research network of European universities specialising in intercultural communication, where you will be taught by experts from nine different European countries.
The Eurocampus study programme (EMICC) is designed to further enhance academic and professional competence of participants preparing for careers in business and beyond. It covers intercultural communication theories, looks at intercultural communication from the perspective of different academic disciplines and provides the chance to acquire advanced intercultural competencies and skills.
