Why study Intercultural Communication?
In a globalizing world, communication between people of different cultural background is becoming the norm. Unfortunately, such communication is hardly ever without problems. Misunderstandings, prejudice and conflict are frequent. The study of Intercultural Communication creates an understanding of cultural differences: why do they exist, how they can be understood and classified, and how can we deal with them successfully?
You are free to take any course you like, for example to prepare for a study exchange abroad. You can also study XICP0200 Intercultural Communication Programme (ICP) (25 ECTS) as a minor subject. The ICP consists of two modules.
