Course Introduction

The Arabic and Global Communication BA is designed to develop your knowledge, use and understanding of the Arabic language and culture, along with the skills needed for effective communication in the professional global environment.

The course enables you to achieve a good or high level of linguistic competence in Arabic in all four skill areas (reading, writing, listening and speaking), and demonstrate a good or high degree of proficiency in mediating between Arabic and English.

You will be able to function linguistically in diverse cultural situations, and acquire qualities and skills in areas such as interpersonal communication and organisational skills, flexibility and tolerance, analysis and argument, autonomy and team working, and team management. You will also gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

You will study an integrated curriculum with a focus on applied language skills and cultural studies, supported by a rigorous development of your foreign languages skills in all areas. You will develop a high level of competence in oral and written communication in Arabic, proficiency in language transfer skills, a thorough knowledge of Arabic culture, and the ability to function linguistically in diverse cultural situations.

Global Communication will improve your ability as an intercultural communicator through analysis of key issues affecting how our ideas are shaped and communicated in a global society, where our interactions are no longer confined by national, regional or cultural boundaries.
