Compare 4 Masters of Science in Intercultural studies

Not every college graduate is fully prepared to face the challenges that await. For many, additional study is needed. A master’s degree offers students the opportunity to enhance existing skills and specialize in areas of interest. They are valued by employers and help to further develop careers.

What is an MSc in Intercultural Studies? It is an advanced degree program that typically requires at least two years of additional study beyond a four year undergraduate degree. These programs are usually suitable for those who have already completed a course of study in history, globalization, political science or liberal arts. Using an interdisciplinary approach, students explore the issues related to cross cultural communication. Topics often include world religions, global ethics, anthropology, politics, geography, economics and cultural identities. Students become familiar with the most common issues of conflict between societies.

After finishing one of these degree programs, graduates will have further developed their critical thinking, reading and expository writing skills. They are also able to research complex social issues and create presentations that clearly communicate their findings. In addition to enhancing their core skills, these professionals learn techniques for cross cultural negotiation, cultural sensitivity, and many achieve improved interpersonal communication abilities.

The cost to attend one of these programs varies depending on the institution. Those interested should contact the admissions departments of universities under consideration for detailed information regarding fees and tuition.

Graduates are prepared for many exciting work opportunities abroad. These programs are favored by those interested in working in the missionary field. They are also a good choice for those who would like to be involved with advancing human rights agendas. International businesses hire these professionals to work on problems related to intercultural conflicts within their organizations. Government agencies, such as immigration or customs departments, may need these experts to facilitate communication between converging cultures.

It is important to begin researching options as soon as possible. Many universities offer both traditional campus classes and online coursework. For working professionals and international students, distance learning opportunities provide quality education resources that fit within scheduling and geographic restrictions.
