Crosscultural Communication

The Master of Crosscultural Communication is an exciting field of study in today’s globalised world, examining how communication happens in different societies (crosscultural communication), and how people from different societies interact (intercultural communication). The Master of Crosscultural Communication is designed for people working, or aspiring to work, in multicultural sectors in education, law, health, business, marketing and advertising, diplomacy, media, tourism, government and non-government organisations. In this degree you will develop an understanding of how languages work, how societies and cultures differ and the variety of ways in which people from different societies and cultural backgrounds communicate using languages. On this foundation, you will be able to analyse intercultural communication. You are provided with the flexibility to select your own pathway of electives such as:

  • Language, communication and translation
  • Global communication
  • Culture, religion, media and visual communication.

You can also choose to study a particular society, or to focus on a research project. There are three core units for this degree:

  1. LNGS7001 Structure of English
  2. LNGS7002 Language, Society and Power
  3. LNGS7006 Crosscultural Communication
