About this course

Study human interaction and communication in a globally diverse context. You'll learn to analyse everyday language practices and how they fit within our cultural and social processes. 

This course explores the relationship between language and culture in a globalised world. You’ll combine linguistics with cultural and anthropological approaches to communication, including digital and non-digital forms of interaction.  

You’ll have the opportunity to: 

  • choose to study 1 or 2 languages from beginner’s level (optional from year 2) 
  • improve your employability by choosing to do a professional project abroad or a year in employment 
  • learn to engage with multiple cultural perspectives and develop your understanding of complex, real-world issues 

The optional year abroad, or in employment, is a great way to develop your understanding of other cultures and your communication skills. You’ll be ideally placed to get to know the people, make lasting friendships, and learn more about the target language and society.  

You can study the following languages up graduate level: 

  • Chinese 
  • French 
  • German 
  • Portuguese 
  • Spanish 
  • English (for international students) 

You can opt to learn other languages up to stage 2. These include: 

  • Arabic 
  • Italian 
  • Japanese 
  • Russian 

If you’re an international student, you’ll need to meet the English Language requirements of the University. You can, however, opt to study English as one of your languages to become even more proficient.
