The Arabic and Global Communication (Honours) degree offered at the University of Westminster enables you to achieve a good or high level of linguistic competence in Arabic in all four skill areas (reading, writing, listening and speaking), and demonstrate a good or high degree of proﬁciency in mediating between Arabic and English.
You will be able to function linguistically in diverse cultural situations, and acquire qualities and skills in areas such as interpersonal communication and organisational skills, ﬂexibility and tolerance, analysis and argument, autonomy and team working, and team management. You will also gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.
The Arabic courses are only available to beginner or 'false beginner' entrants – false beginners are students who may be able to read the Arabic script, and/or have the equivalent to one or two years' part-time study. Please note that we may need to test you to determine your entry point.
Global Communication will improve your ability as an intercultural communicator through analysis of key issues affecting how our ideas are shaped and communicated in a global society, where our interactions are no longer confined by national, regional or cultural boundaries.
