MA Global Communication

Tilburg University

Global Communication

Global Communication is a renewed, fully English-taught track of the Master's program in Culture Studies. You will learn to understand the communicative challenges of life in times of globalization and superdiversity, how all this communication between cultures and sub-cultures affects the people it concerns, and how education and policy-making can improve these contacts and facilitate collaboration.



Why Global Communication in Tilburg?

Modern life is seriously affected by globalization. Between cradle and grave, we encounter thousands of situations in which we interact with people who do not share the same background. We are more mobile, don't stay in the same place and our everyday contacts span many different social groups.

In addition, the internet gives us unlimited access to people and information and enables us to communicate without being constrained by time and place. These aspects of globalization have made societies ‘superdiverse’.

Living and collaborating in such a super diverse world requires a flexible and expansive communicative repertoire.



Therefore this Master's program offers you the knowledge and skills to:

  • Become sensitive to variation in communicative behavior across social groups and across different settings, including offline and online modes of communication.
  • Understand the phenomena to which globalization gives rise, and how people acquire and use the communicative skills they need to succeed.
  • Develop education and policy to improve these contacts between cultures and sub-cultures, and facilitate collaboration.
  • Learn within a setting of small-scale working methods with a great deal of interaction between fellow students and teachers.
