Cultural and language differences shape the everyday life of individuals and organizations in our increasingly interdependent and transnational world. These cultural and language entanglements include different histories and conflicts and are represented in different media and literature. The increased interconnectivity and transnational mobility of both people and mediated information demand new sensitivities and skills to understand, analyze and negotiate cultural difference. The Intercultural Studies program prepares students to analyze different contemporary contexts of identity negotiation and interaction and to engage in planning for professional interaction in globalizing spaces while enhancing language competences. Students can choose from four different tracks:

Intercultural Studies (English)
Intercultural Studies (French)
Intercultural Studies (German)
Intercultural Studies (Latin America and Spain)


The program develops students’ knowledge on diverse conceptualizations of culture and the rich potentials of cultural differences while sharpening language skills to enable intercultural dialogue and collaboration in a global world. The program also contains practical components for students to develop their competencies in working innovatively on intercultural issues within and beyond organizations.


The four different foreign-language combinations follow a basic structure but address interculturality within specific historical and societal contexts related to the English, French, German and Spanish languages. The English track is taught exclusively in English while the other three tracks are taught both in English and in French, German and Spanish respectively.
