The programme focuses on the most central of human skills: the ability to use language. Language has a fundamental role in shaping and maintaining societies and cultures as well as identities and groups. It is also a tool for exerting power; by means of language, social relations, power relations and hierarchies are maintained, and conflicts are shaped.
The aim of the programme is to equip you with the skills necessary to tackle some of the challenges that modern societies are facing, through an awareness and knowledge of the power of language, as well as critical analytical tools that can unravel ‘the veil of language’ and expose the structures that shape our thinking. Areas that can be focused on include, but are not limited to, issues of integration and minority/majority relations, media representations of different groups and events in society, power structures related to gender, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation, to name but a few.

Career opportunities

The list of areas where this kind of expertise is needed includes community building, conflict management, andanti-discrimination work. In addition, the skills gained through the programme are valuable within the media sector and within communications departments in the public and private sectors. The programme can also be a step towards future post-graduate studies.
