Intercultural Communication (SML2246)

15 credits

The aim of this module is to introduce you to intercultural competence and to the important role it plays in multilingual and multicultural encounters. The module will allow you to explore concepts such as communication, identity, culture, and othering in a wide range of contexts and media, and to apply them to your own personal experience. You will engage with core discipline readings and draw on them to identify, describe, and interpret specific case studies and situations in which communication can break down and intercultural conflicts arise. The module will help you to reflect critically on cultural and linguistic diversity and increase your intercultural communication awareness.
