About this Course

Communication is the key to solving the world’s problems. Diplomatic breakthroughs, scientific discoveries, life-saving health advice – all these things depend on the ability to communicate clearly and effectively.

Communication also increasingly relies on an understanding of cultural context, across complex global networks.
If you have a bachelor’s degree in any field, this course will equip you with the communication skills to unlock the potential of your degree; and to really have an impact. You’ll master successful oral communication techniques, learn how to write for specific audiences and become proficient at analysing digital texts. You’ll also learn best-practice communication strategies to manage interactions between organisations.
As part of the course and to contextualise your learning to your own interests and expertise, you’ll design and execute a Masters project. This will be a guided independent study that emphasises a process of inquiry, analysis, and synthesis of communications theory and practice to your own discipline.
