Students in this program will engage in research, education, and outreach with a view to understanding the challenges of today’s changing intercultural settings in Qatar and worldwide.
The program aims to respond to these changed societal demands, including the need for court interpreting, community interpreting, and medical interpreting – the three mediational forms of interpreting in intercultural settings and work environments that are specific to Qatar. The program will also offer courses on intercultural communication and the use of digital technologies to achieve effective intercultural communication in an inclusive and accessible society.
Additionally, research in the intercultural communication field will generate new policies and e-applications geared towards implementing the outcomes of the distinct features of the program. These program outcomes will lead to the creation of innovative applications fit for heading transformative changes in Qatar and globally.
Additionally, the MAICC program will liaise with the CHSS Department of Middle Eastern Studies for cross-departmental courses and with Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar to offer a multidisciplinary curriculum in Intercultural Communication, integrating the use of digital technologies, and the knowledge of societal change management.
