Cultural Studies

An understanding of language and culture opens the doorway to understanding what happens, why it happens and how you can make a difference. The Language Centre offers enriching modules and a Global Challenges Pathway to help prepare students for life in a modern, interconnected environment.

At Keele, we offer a wide range of opportunities for staff and students to study languages and gain cultural awareness, enhancing your language skills and cultural knowledge. From pre-sessional courses to modern languages, we will support you in developing your confidence to learn new languages in a friendly and welcoming environment, whatever your level.

'The Intercultural Explorer' pathway explores cultural practices around the world and uncovers how the power of language and culture can be forces for breaking down barriers and achieving intercultural understanding, but how they can also be used to create political and social barricades.
