Overview

This is an interdisciplinary programme offered by the Faculty of Philosophy via the UNESCO Chair in Inter-cultural and Inter-religious Exchanges.

The curriculum is flexible and it addresses students with interest in the Humanities and Social Sciences, but with a variety of backgrounds. It offers an excellent framework for cultural studies.
