    Course Summary

    Royal Roads University’s Intercultural and International Communication MA degree program is designed to give those already working in the field of strategic or professional communications at a management level the knowledge and skills they need to improve the way they help their organisations respond to rapidly changing conditions worldwide. However, it is also very useful for Arts and Sciences graduates who wish to found a career in international or intercultural communication.

    This program can delivered in 2 different ways. The first is an intensive on campus program lasting a full 18 months. The second is delivered almost exclusively remotely. It uses the university’s preferred ‘Blended Learning’ model where there is a single intensive initial residency period followed by extensive periods of remote learning. This is particularly convenient for students who are already working in this (or any other) field, as the distance learning components can typically be attended to around existing work, family or personal commitments. 

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
