Programme description  

The Programme is designed to provide students with knowledge, skills and competences in the field of intercultural communication. These qualifications are very important and desirable not only in today’s labour market, but also essential for success in educational institutions. The Programme is addressed to Polish students who wish to study in English in an international environment and to foreign students who are interested in MA studies in Poland with English as the language of instruction.  By participating in the courses, students will acquire knowledge about the cultural diversity of the world, an understanding of multicultural problems in the era of global economic and educational migration, as well as necessary intercultural competences and skills.

The programme of study is based on four major thematic blocks: 1) cultural studies; 2) relations between language and culture; 3) practical learning of a foreign language; and 4) preparation for writing a Master’s thesis. The specified units provide intercultural competences and skills necessary for functioning in an international work and educational environment. Such a structured programme of study furnishes one with knowledge in the field of cultural anthropology, issues related to national and ethnic minorities, and nonverbal communication in an intercultural context. Practical language and personal skills, which enable the students to operate on the international labour market, are also important elements of our Programme.

The studies “Intercultural Communication in Education and the Workplace” are unique on a nation-wide scale, because they are the only offer of this kind in Poland. In fact, no other State or private University in Poland offers courses on issues related to intercultural communication in relation to education and the workplace.
