Find out more information about Area & Cultural Studies

Area studies comprise all fields of a society from a certain geographic spot. Research in this field usually involves social sciences combined with humanities, with aspects such as the diaspora community and emigration. Meanwhile, cultural studies focus on perspectives and practices in certain cultures from Asian, African, American or Latin regions, and pay a special attention to ideology, class structures, ethnics, generations and other important factors.

Students in a Bachelor’s programme in area and cultural studies can choose an international university and specialize in one of the main civilizations or study abroad and learn more about the roots of that local culture. Students will develop international cultural sensibilities, an open mind to what makes a culture unique, but also similar to others, as well as find new ways of effective communication.

Area and cultural studies is a discipline that constantly blends theory with research, in order to understand the meaning that humans give to the world around them. Graduates have high chances of becoming analysts of the society, sociologists, marketing specialists, teachers or lecturers, in the public or private environment.
