Department of Communication

The Master’s Programme in Intercultural Communication is a two-year interdisciplinary course focusing on intercultural communication theory and practice. Through this approach, students consider the cultural implications of the ongoing changes in how people from differing cultural backgrounds interact with each other. In the programme, students focus on various approaches to intercultural communication. In addition to theoretical depth, there is a strong practical aspect in the programme, providing communication and content production competencies required in the multicultural, networked world. The programme prepares students for careers involving significant intercultural contacts in companies, public organizations, and non-governmental organizations. The students will be also qualified for research-intensive employment; the MA degree qualifies students for enrolment in doctoral studies.
