Intercultural communication

Intercultural communication

Intercultural communication is a minor subject provided by the Faculty of Arts, Psychology and Theology. The subject deals with how to understand the challenges involved in intercultural encounters, dialogue and communication in various contexts. How can we make communication work or reach a dialogue beyond cultural barriers and stereotypes? What does intercultural competence mean and what does it require from us? How are we as individuals affected by different forms of intercultural mobility?

The following three courses are mandatory if you want to have Intercultural communication as a minor subject as part of your degree.

  • Introduction to Intercultural Communication
