Understanding communication and knowing how to apply that knowledge is relevant to business and industry at every level.
In this module we explore the complex relationship between society and language. How does our use of language affect the way we interact and are perceived by others? Why do people speak differently or use different languages in different situations?
Study of language variation and the impact of gender, ethnicity and regional differences on language use allows us to explore these questions and reflect on our own methods of communication. We also take a global approach and consider how institutions such as governments manage multilingual settings and societies, taking into account current issues of diversity, globalisation and migration.
