MA Intercultural Communication & Education at Durham University

[email protected]


Explore education and intercultural communication in the context of global movements of people and develop a critical understanding that will inform your approach to teaching, learning and research.


In an increasingly connected world with a myriad of global study opportunities, it is more important than ever that educators develop teaching practices that are effective in intercultural learning environments.


The MA in Intercultural Communication & Education develops your critical understanding of education and communication in the context of global movements of people and the internationalisation of education. It provides students, educators and policymakers with resources for reflecting on and responding to the growing need for effective intercultural communication in relation to education.


Core modules such as Intercultural Communication consider communication in the context of identity, stereotyping, prejudice and life transitions, including studying abroad, to give you a deeper awareness of cultural differences. Others, such as Intercultural & International Education, develop your critical understanding of the theories, approaches and practices of intercultural and international education. Our wide range of optional modules and the MA dissertation allow you to tailor the course to your individual interests and career path.


Through studying this course, you will develop a greater awareness of cultural differences and be better equipped to make informed decisions in relation to teaching and research in intercultural and international environments.


The course combines innovative teaching with exceptional support. You will gain valuable insight into education across the world as you study alongside students from different countries and backgrounds. To further enhance your experience, you will learn from world-class academics who are behind some of the leading research in the field.


With full-time and part-time study options, the MA is accessible to students from a wide range of backgrounds. It is likely to appeal to educational leaders and practitioners from around the world who are seeking substantive professional development and career opportunities, to those progressing from undergraduate study, as well as many other backgrounds.


The consistently high ranking of the School gives us a worldwide reputation for the quality of not only our teaching but the skills and knowledge of our postgraduate community. The delivery of the subject by the relevant experts on our academic team brings together world class research, innovative teaching and exceptional support.


Your time as a member of the School's student community places you in the strong position to pursue a successful career in a range of different sectors. Career opportunities in education are numerous and rewarding and include classroom teaching, educational leadership and management, administration and policy development.


Most of our PGCE graduates go directly into teaching. In keeping with career ambitions, MA graduates progress into a wide range of roles including educational research, publishing, education administration, policy making and management as well as jobs in the commercial or public sector.
