Master’s Degree Programme in Language, Globalization and Intercultural Communication

Study objectives

How does globalization challenge our understanding of language and communication? What roles do language and culture play in our societies? What are the connections between media, discourse and power? How does one understand language learning and questions of identity in today’s world? If you are interested in these and similar questions and their complex answers, the Master’s Degree Programme in Language, Globalization and Intercultural Communication (LAGIC) is right for you.

LAGIC is a two-year interdisciplinary course focusing on contemporary issues in applied language studies and intercultural communication in a globalizing world. The programme looks at language and communication related questions such as multilingualism, discourse and power, media, mobility and migration, as well as the cultural implications of the ongoing changes in how people from differing cultural backgrounds interact with each other.

In addition to theoretical depth, there is a strong practical aspect in the programme, providing communication competencies required in the multicultural, networked world. The programme prepares students for careers involving significant intercultural contacts in companies, public organizations, and non-governmental organizations. The students will be also qualified for research-intensive employment.

The LAGIC programme combines intercultural communication and applied language studies in a nationally and internationally unique way. The programme itself is new, but it has strong roots. The University of Jyväskylä is one of the pioneers in the teaching and research of intercultural communication in Finland.

The LAGIC programme relates directly to one of the core fields in research of the University of Jyväskylä: language, culture and communities in global change processes. The curriculum also includes links to the core fields of learning, teaching and the learning and growth environments that support development and information technology and the human in the knowledge society. The programme is located at the Department of Language and Communication Studies which is a large, multilingual and actively international unit.

Study contents

The LAGIC programme offers courses on several focus areas, including:

1. The dynamics of language and social interaction in multicultural and multilingual settings
2. The impact of globalization, migration and multilingualism on societies and organizations
3. Communication in online and mediated environments
4. Language and communication education
5. Discourse studies

The program also includes and extensive research component (Master’s thesis and related courses) as well as a practical experience in the working life (an internship of 2 -3 months or a working life project course).

As a LAGIC student you get to meet and network with students from different disciplines and backgrounds. This is facilitated by the collaborative and dialogic approach to teaching. Through group or pair work, discussions, presentations, and independent study we enable our students to develop skills they need in their professional life. In addition to academic and scientific knowledge, the LAGIC programme includes hands-on courses where you can apply theories and knowledge to real-life situations.
