On-Campus Delivery Model

The on-campus delivery model of the MA in Intercultural and International Communication program has been popular with students looking to continue their education after earning their bachelor degree, and want to pursue a career in intercultural communication.

Students in the on-campus program have the option to complete the program in 18 months with a course-based option, or an internship.
