Subject Description
In an era of globalisation, communication across cultures is key to our capacity to thrive in diverse workplaces. This subject introduces students to the key issues of intercultural communication, and how these interrelate with developments in transnational media industries and practices. We examine the historical impact of media technologies and institutions on the formation of local, national and international cultural communities and explore contemporary sites of opportunity or crisis produced by the emergence of global communication networks.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Identify and discuss ways in which communication within and across cultures is affected by media practices and transnational media flows.
2. Demonstrate skills in essay writing appropriate to first year university level
3. Demonstrate beginning skills in small group work.
4. Demonstrate awareness of benefits and challenges of intercultural interactions and understanding of strategies to improve communication across cultures.
