Intercultural studies - Master

Master in intercultural studies

Apply hereIn a time of intensified globalization and increased migration, cultural diversity increases in most levels of society and is experienced nearly everywhere. At the master’s program in Intercultural Studies in Bergen, Norway, you will study intercultural communication, and cultural and social factors influencing intercultural relations. The objective is to enable you understand, describe, analyze and manage cultural diversity in different contexts of theory and practice.

About the program

The program will raise awareness of cultural analytical and ethical perspectives on life in diverse, multi-ethnic and complex societies focusing on conditions and consequences of inclusion and exclusion, identity formation, human dignity, and religion. It will deal with South-North relations and effects of globalization on local communities. There will be particular attention to the roles religion play in identity and value formation, in conflicts and peacemaking and the impacts of religious pluralism in civic life. Intercultural Studies are not conforming to a particular religion. The theoretical foundations are based on socio-cultural anthropology, religious studies, and intercultural communication.

  • Completed a bachelor´s degree or a cand. mag.

Optional courses may have additional requirements. Certificates from countries using another grading scale will be assessed individually.

- Learning outcomes and curriculum on cultural theories and descriptive cultural analysis at an international level (e.g social/cultural anthropology, ethnology, cultural studies) with at least 50 % of the 80 ECTS credits including  multicultural/intercultural empirical settings, such as ethnic and religious minority perspectives, transnational migration, and/or local appropriation and effects of  globalization and;
