Students often seek a master’s degree to achieve higher-order learning in areas of interest. While undergraduate degrees usually focus on broad surveys of a discipline, master’s degree programs tend to offer more intensive study paths on smaller topics. 

What is a Master in Comparative Cultural Studies? In a comparative cultural program, students use the lenses of sociology, anthropology, and psychology to study the ways different cultures have evolved and continue to change today. Students immerse themselves in media studies, using the literature, film, and arts of different cultures to gain insight into historical social trends and identify the idiosyncrasies that separate one culture from another. Increasingly, graduates also study the rising trends of globalization and how present-day events and technologies are expected to impact the shape of future cultures. Students may need to complete an internship, thesis, or both to finish their degrees.

Graduates are often well-versed in navigating sensitive cultural differences, trained in gathering cultural data, and practiced in respectful cultural critique. These abilities are not only vital for international careers but also enable students to be responsible members of the emerging global society.

Costs vary among institutions and are based on a multitude of different factors. To ensure programs fit their financial as well as scholastic needs, prospective learners should reach out to their universities of choice directly.

Holding a degree in comparative cultural studies can provide global employment opportunities. Cultural sensitivity and expertise are in high demand in fields such as diplomacy, politics, and education. Specific job titles usually held by graduates include media producer, museum administrator or director, social advocate, community coordinator, cultural researcher, and cross-cultural trainer. Students can find employment within private companies where their expertise can aid product development or within the public sector where their historical and political prowess can support international relations.

Because of its integrated use of media, a Master in Comparative Cultural Studies may be pursued locally or at a distance and is available from universities all around the world.

The programme Comparative Arts and Media Studies focuses on the in-betweenness and crossovers in modern and contemporary visual culture. By this we mean the interrelations within and between various old and new media, but also between media and visual arts. These have been intensified with the arrival of digital media and of the 'hypermedium' that arises from the on-screen interplay of words, images, and sounds and through the technological convergences of cinema, television, radio, and digital media. Our programme offers historical and theoretical perspectives on these phenomena while also taking into account real-life developments in the field of museum practices. Our students have had careers in education and research, media companies, and art institutions. -
