International Communication

Today more than ever, clear communication among people of different nationalities and from different societies is essential.

In a world where English is widely spoken, its use can conceal deep differences in cultural assumptions.

When travelling overseas, we quickly gain an understanding of the difficulties and challenges we face in communicating with people from other cultures, as well as the rewards which can come from establishing good communication with them.

Through the study of communication across societies, cultures and nationalities, you will gain a broad intellectual understanding of intercultural communication issues, ranging from translation, to linguistic, to psychological, to economic, to historical.

Career options

Studying international communication prepares students for a variety of careers in government, business, education, non-government international agencies, media, and generally any career which involves contact with people from different backgrounds.
