Does cultural diversity promote mutual understanding?

The Master’s Programme in Intercultural Encounters offers a multidisciplinary approach to intercultural issues, and aims to foster an appreciation of different facets of intercultural contact in the students. The teaching is grounded in the latest academic research, which enables students to apply their theoretical grasp to everyday situations in a multicultural and internationally oriented working life.
