INTERACTIONS - MA Degree Programme in Intercultural Communication & Digital Culture

The Interactions Master's Degree Programme is a two-year interdisciplinary course which combines communication studies and cultural studies in a unique way. Through this pioneering approach, students will be able to widely consider the cultural implications of the ongoing changes in how people from various cultures interact with each other face-to-face and through digital communication technologies. In the programme, students will be able to select between two main fields of specialization, intercultural communication and digital culture. In addition to theoretical depth, there is a strong practical aspect in the programme, providing communication and content production competencies required in the multicultural, networked world. The programme prepares students for careers involving significant intercultural contacts in companies, public organizations and non-governmental organizations. The students will also be qualified for research-intensive employment; the MA degree qualifies students for enrolment in doctoral studies.

The programme starts in September 2012; application period 21 November 2011 - 16 January 2012.
