Master’s Degree Programme in Language, Globalization and Intercultural Communication

Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Department of Language and Communication Studies

How does globalization challenge our understanding of language and communication? What roles do language and culture play in our societies? What are the connections between media, discourse and power? How does one understand language learning and questions of identity in today’s world? If you are interested in these and similar questions and their complex answers, the Master’s Degree Programme in Language, Globalization and Intercultural Communication (LAGIC) is right for you. 

LAGIC is a two-year interdisciplinary course focusing on contemporary issues in applied language studies and intercultural communication in a globalizing world. The programme looks at language and communication related questions such as multilingualism, discourse and power, media, mobility and migration, as well as the cultural implications of the ongoing changes in how people from differing cultural backgrounds interact with each other.
