Course description

Students in the Master's program in Transcultural Studies explore the dynamics of cultural exchange, transformations, and interconnections between Asia and Europe. This program's transregional approach challenges the conventional notions of cultures as ethnically isolated, linguistically uniform, and territorially confined. In this program, students delve into various subjects that highlight the fluidity and interconnectedness of cultures. They examine how cultural practices, ideas, and artifacts move across regions, influencing and reshaping societies. The curriculum encourages a deep understanding of the complexities involved in cultural interactions and the impact of these exchanges on both local and global scales. By questioning traditional cultural boundaries, the Master's program in Transcultural Studies fosters a more nuanced perspective on how cultures evolve and interact. This approach not only broadens students' academic horizons but also equips them with the analytical tools needed to navigate and contribute to our increasingly interconnected world.
