MA in Sociology Intercultural Mediation program gives you a unique chance to ask and seek answers to the big questions about social changes taking place every day around you (think about migrations, social movements, cultural transformations, and many more). What are the reasons for these changes? What are their implications for the individual and for the whole society?
We put great emphasis on the topic of Intercultural Mediation which means we help you understand how culture (in its great variety) informs social change and how it can be facilitated using the knowledge on how people create social groups, how they communicate, what kind of internal and external factors influence how society works.
