Modern Language with Management Studies

As well as developing your language competence, you’ll explore the theory and practice of business management, and the role of language and translation in today’s global communication networks.    The language-learning element of your degree will involve translation from and to English, reading and listening comprehension, précis and paraphrase work, the study of different styles and registers, lexical exercises and oral work. At the same time you’ll also develop your business acumen by undertaking modules providing you with the foundations of business management. You may like to specialise in marketing or business ethics, or even intercultural communication.     Since presentation skills are vital in the contemporary work environment, you’ll focus on vocal and physical projection, developing poise and managing nerves. You’ll also practice speaking from notes, improvisation, and being able to structure arguments coherently.    In all of these activities, you’ll use contemporary rather than literary or historical materials.    You’ll also have the opportunity to take another language as part of your degree or as a non-credit module with certification at no extra cost. You can choose from Arabic, British Sign Language, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Advanced English.    **Course Structure**  **Year 1**  With a combination of compulsory and optional modules you’ll be introduced to key themes in the study of language, culture, and intercultural communication. You’ll investigate language and culture with topics related to your chosen language. You’ll also establish a solid understanding of business management via the compulsory modules Introduction to Business, and Introducing Intercultural Communication. You can develop your interests further via optional modules in, for example, politics, discourse, or interpersonal communication.    **Year 2**  At this stage of your course you’ll begin the process of specialisation while pushing your language fluency to the next level. You’ll develop expertise in the areas that interest you most, choosing from a range of topics such as subtitling and dubbing; the French language today, reinterpreting 21st century Spain, Japanese popular culture, and contemporary Japanese society. You’ll also specialise within business management taking modules on human resource management and marketing. You may also like to take optional modules on globalisation, the media, intercultural communication or politics.    **Year 3**  You’ll spend your third year abroad on a study or work placement. This will greatly develop and enhance both your linguistic and cultural confidence; allowing you to think more as a native speaker.   **Year 4**  You’ll have the opportunity to really develop your business management understanding further and opt to specialise in either ethics, marketing, entrepreneurship, or brand management. You’ll also be able to study intercultural communication with business and explore cross-cultural business practices. You can also choose any media and society modules not taken in your second year, or spend a semester researching a topic of your choice in a dissertation.    **Disclaimer**  Course details are subject to change.
